Hi @Tucker-Sutlive,

I'm having trouble viewing this question on my end. Are you able to tell what test/section it is from? And the question number?

If not, if you could write out the first line or two of the question you're seeing in a response to this, we could probably find it that way. Sorry for the inconvenience!

When the question mentions "social control," it reminds us of the
second criticism discussed in the passage. The second criticism is
discussed in line 27 when "social control thesis" is mentioned. Based
on this theory, philanthropy "was a means of controlling the labor
force and ensuring the continued dominance of the management class"
(lines 32-34). With (E), we have a great answer choice, as a social
control theorist would likely think that these individuals were not
participating in philanthropy for the sake of being philanthropic;
rather, they were doing it so that they could maintain their control.
Thus, (E) is the correct answer choice.

Does this answer your question? Let us know if you have any other questions!
