All capitalist societies are established with influences of socialism and communism mixed in to their framework. In fact, indications are that capitalism feeds off of these influences as much as it is begrudged to feed them. Can a capitalist system stand alone? Will it require extensive control mechanisms to do so, or are the forces inherent in the system enough to sustain a society? Lastly, should we aim to wean capitalism from socialist and communist inputs, or is such a balance healthy?
