The only reason we hear a lot of criticism about capitalism is because pseudo intellectuals are parroting what they've heard from Marxist professors
and talking heads.
Truth be told, we are seeing crony capitalism; a bastardized form of capitalism that we've allowed the elites in business and government form. True
capitalism works just fine. Corrupt people who have circumvented the safeguards we have in place are the reason we have the corruption we see today,
not because capitalism is fundamentally flawed.
I like how you so shamelessly undermined marxists and communists and then went ahead and parroted them yourself:
"It's not the system that is flawed, it works! We just haven't made it work yet!"
I'm sorry but a system of government that not only encourages megalomania, but demands it, is corrupt at the core of the ideology.
