Everywhere there is kind of feudalism re-invented.Previously there were feudal Lords aka different names of zamindar's samanta etc now we have politicians.
Capitalist countries -- >> Big companies/ investment companies and lobbies are feudal lords. They decide which policies should be legalized and they also create loop holes to benefit them. They also decide the elections indirectly through media houses and manipulate public sentiment.
The fundamental nature of power remains the same only mechanism changes through centuries IMO.
So now we have democracy.. new churan that keeps people happy. However, one should not forget it does give us some power to maneuver the economic/political ladder more easily rather than no win situation.
