Now I quickly typed into a search to see if anyone uses the Maxwell
Equations to derive Malus's law of polarization and found this one:

"Optical models for quantum mechanics" by Arnold Neumaier, a lecture
delivered at University Giessen, Feb2010.

I have not read that lecture, but I would think that you do not need
quantum mechanics at all, provided if you apply the Symmetrical
Maxwell Equations with its magnetic monopoles. The key, in my opinion,
is that EM waves have a pilot wave and it is the pilot wave that
causes phase changes and thus creates Malus law.

The whole idea of having the Symmetrical Maxwell Equations as the
axioms over all of physics, is that they thence get rid of Quantum
Mechanics. In other words, the Maxwell Equations are more powerful
than Quantum Mechanics, and that Quantum Mechanics is the Maxwell
Equations with holes in them.

The Symmetrical Maxwell Equations derives all of Quantum Mechanics,
but not the reverse.
