I think most people operate on pain avoidance. The system is so huge, so all-pervasive, no one imagines a different system but instead imagines a little less harm to themselves personally. This is how in the US you wind up with single issue voters. Women who fear losing what few reproductive rights they have. People who feel not owning an assault rifle will diminish their lives. People wind up participating in the system in a hope that they can mitigate some of the damage the system is doing to them.
