2179. Democracy and capitalism

It is simple. Democracy and capitalism  are two parallel ways of making decisions for society.  Trouble is, capital,  through the use of money,  controls the media which controls the minds of the demos, , and controls the  representatives democracy is allowed to vote for. So capital ends up making the major decisions.

Are there alternative systems?   Localism with direct democracy and democracy as conversation, rather than voting, toward consensus?
