Q: What does "observable trend" in this passage mean?

Even this history of rebellious fashion offers its own opportunity for critique that the show could have folded into itself, as capitalist systems almost inevitably monetize a sufficiently popular trend and in the process strip away its radical roots: an observable trend from the mainstreaming of drag to the fetishizing of the Gothic Lolita aesthetic by the anime industry.

I have questions.
1.SHouldn't "but" be needed like "cannnot help but"
2.What does "would" indicates?
I assume that "would" means "used to" "there is a if-clause behind it" "the future in the past".
in this case, which is fitted?
A: 1. Yes, there should be a “but” there. Sometimes those missing words get overlooked when they are part of a common phrase we see often.

2. The “if clause” sounds right, but the small excerpt makes it hard to tell for sure. It sounds like something was done for some men—if the men had been of lower rank or skill level, they would not have been given the service. Does that make sense? It’s hard not to use the word you’re asking about when explaining it. :)
