How about outright socialism?

It's often been said that the New Deal saved capitalism from itself.
That is a rather debatable statement. But it is less debatable that the
New Deal may have saved capitalism from what capitalists would consider
to be worse alternatives. For one thing, it seems to have practically
killed off socialism as a movement with any real power in America. No,
random Democrats you don't like don't count.
