Capitalism functions by giving all people equal opportunity. Socialism functions by trying to make all people equal, regardless of risks taken or the

Government is a concept. In Europe, the concept that dominated until the signing of the Mayflower Compact in 1620 was that of monarchy. An elite class
ran things and those who were not royals served. In Africa and some Native American societies, tribal chieftains ran things. In some areas of Africa,
they still do.
Concepts and the policies that support governing philosophies must be compatible with all human endeavors. This is true whether the concept or policy
applies to business, government, or personal lifestyle choices. If IBM decides its business concept is computers but implements policies designed to
support restaurants, IBM will fail. A movie's script (the concept) must be compatible with the scenery, roles and actors (the supporting policies).
Otherwise, you have Hansel and Gretl starring in Psycho.
A fairy tale helps me illustrate why socialism and capitalism do not mix. It's a story about Jack and Jenny.
