6. I don't see why not........

Computers run and organize a lot of industrial society already. As Limpy said downthread. it just needs to be under worker control.

I think you'd also need SOME sort of centralized planning (at least for a while) to handle neccessities during the changeover from capitalist production to socialist production and distribution. The cities will probably be the center of any revolutionary impulses in the advanced capitalist states and you would want your supporters fed and clothed while things are consolidated.
