The implied answer that I've gotten is a dictatorship, which apparently won't undermine democracy at all (and has not in the past).

That answer seems a bit... flaky... to me.

No, unfettered, greedy capitalism undermines democracy. Here's a system that is capitalistic and not full of douchebags plutocrats:

A constitution that prevents private donors(all candidates receive equal shares of public money) and stiff punishment for politicians who take bribes.

Democracy sans lobbists would be a good start.

Capitalism does not undermine democracy at all.


Crony capitalism does, which is what happens when the electorate falls asleep and lets politicians go corrupt.

Workers controlling the means of production. You'll notice I didn't say government or "the people."

But a democratic private sector is still technically socialism, so I guess it's "evil" or something.

Workers controlling the means of production

How would that work? And wouldn't it still involve a large amount of capitalism?
