Ever hear of the “mixed economy” Holly? The caricature you paint of capitalism doesn’t match the reality of the complex economic ecosystem we have, in USA for instance, which we let capitalism’s best tools such as the price mechanism dominate, but also inject socialists’&environmentalists’ ideas&practices via government to correct capitalism’s excesses. So far all communist/socialist governments which started from their communist/socialist premises and tried to use capitalist ideas/practices (Lenin’s New Economic Program for instance) in the end [those governments] failed. It’s about what worse only. Hackneyed but “Capitalism is the worse system except all the others …” pretty much true but “our system” isn’t pure capitalism which is what you rant about, we have a mixed economy here; hello!
