Yes. Emotional blackmail through societal norms and the media.

Society tells us what is good or bad, right or wrong, acceptable and not acceptable. Misbehave and you are ostracized by society. The media plays on our emotions, invoking anger, sorrow, fear, etc to gain viewers. They do this for financial gain but...  in the process they invoke actions due to the emotions they stir up. I try to tell myself that this is not a deliberate attempt at controlling society, but if that were not so, what is the point of political rallies? Or any rally for that matter? Why try to distract us with reality shows   more

Yes, the end result of Capitalism is always a Plutocracy

The wealth distribution and eventual aggregation of wealth at the top tiers of society in a capitalism demands that generation transition of wealth eventually supersedes entrepreneurial endeavor as the means by which individuals reach top tiers of s... ociety. This leads to the formation of small group of individuals who by familial inheritance more than anything have disproportionately more wealth and power than the majority public, and who are unlikely to rescind such wealth voluntarily as they are generally in control of the economic power structures which govern their own wealth acquisition   more

Social democracy

Social democracy is a political ideology that officially has as its goal the establishment of democratic socialism through reformist and gradualist methods. Alternatively, social democracy is defined as a policy regime involving a universal welfare ... state and collective bargaining schemes within the framework of a capitalist economy. It is often used in this manner to refer to the social models and economic policies prominent in Western and Northern Europe during the later half of the 20th century.Following the split between reformists and revolutionary socialists in the Second International, social democrats have advocated for a peaceful and evolutionary transition of the economy to socialism through progressive social reform of capitalism. Social democracy asserts that the only acceptable constitutional form of government is representative democracy under the rule of law. It promotes extending democratic decision-making beyond political democracy to include economic democracy to guarantee employees and other economic stakeholders sufficient rights of co-determination   more
