I hate capitalism-
"YOU MEAN CORPORATISM?!?!?!?!?!"
Yeah, that thing that capitalism caused. I hate that, too.
Capitalism causes work incentive - without the risk of failing, people will not strive. They just coast. Without the incentive to perform better and get ahead, there is no innovation. Case in point: every socialist/communist country ever (except modern China, which has a capitalist market system), current example North Korea. It is when capitalism is improperly regulated that you have problems. In the USA, under-regulation: improper distribution of wealth allowed to grow exponentially. In South Korea, over-regulation, where the government controls which companies can make which goods and entry and exit is nearly impossible without direct government approval: no entrepreneurs.
In today’s modern society, you can’t hope that one government will regulate their business owners, American business owners build their businesses on exporting labor. Additionally, I think it is fallacious to suggest that since something hasn’t worked in the past that it will never work. Additionally, the OP didn’t mention anything about communism, people just automatically assume that dichotomy. I don’t think that the inherent system of capitalism is what causes work incentive. I am not driven by the desire to make money or to make products to make money for someone else. I’m driven by a desire to make the world a better place, something that capitalism perpetually does the opposite of (We see the way capitalists so willingly pollute the environment in the name of making their products, the way in which they abuse labor, the way they abandon the poor, middle and working classes.)
Please don’t chalk up my inner motivation to some desire to perpetuate a capitalist system when I’ve never been paid for the writing, speaking or activism I do, thanks.
