Forget about all the major "isms"…Capitalism, Consumerism, Socialism, Communism and Fascism. There is a new (old) kid on the block, and it goes by the name of Incrementalism.
Incrementalism is the modern socioeconomic model for tyranny and it is the ultimate incarnation and evolution of all of the "ism's". Incrementalism is the reason why we suddenly seem to find ourselves in a pot full of hot water that is getting ready to boil, with little memory of how we got here.
Tyranny that is forced on a population all at once can result in a revolution. However, tyranny that is spoon-fed to a population over an extended period of time results in acclimatization to it without realization of it. And as long as it is done under the guise of being something good or beneficial for the people, then there is usually little resistance from the bulk of the population.
