This sort of talk invalidates the whole concept that Sept 11 happened for no reason.

It is much easier for people to live with the idea that terrorism is a mindless act committed by unthinking crazy people.

How's that capitalism saving anything? It seems a desperate attempt to try and save a sinking ship.

Capitalists desperately trying to fix their own colossal mess.
Not sure if capitalismalone can save the world. However, it is certainly the best documented and successful choice. In less than a century, for all its admitted faults, it has raised 3 billion out of poverty increased crops, & by giving 3rd world women better control over their reproductive cycle raised them out of poverty.

However, any and all other "isms" especially Socialism, Communism, Authoriarianism, theocracies, and religion ALL have a much much worse proven historical record.

The only people against Capitalism are gullible uneducated and ignorant fools, and traitors.

Google and your public library are your friends. Surprise,surprise !

Hey! You might even become educated.

Ah, you've drank the socialist kool aide have yuh? Well I would strongly suggest that you take Gilgameshs' advice and do some research. I think you will be "educated" and learn that while capitalism has it's issues, he is absolutely right in stating historically, socialism, communism, etc., etc., have failed miserably and always will. Humans are greedy suckers and you'll find yourself at the bottom of the barrel, being fed crap while those who insist that they know better than everyone else feed off of you to your detriment. Remember, you heard that here first!!

I don't think Socialism should be in with this, TBH.

Because when you look at it, the US, Canada and other countries are all wholely or in part Socialism-Capitalism countries, it just varies on the degree of both.

And no pure Communism has ever been tried, so we don't know if it'd truly work.

The rest though has happened lots over history so we know how much fail it is.

I guess you missed the history class that covered 1917-1991 Russia/USSR part

That's for sure. America is in danger of going from Capitalism to Authoritarianism, with a Trump re-election. It would be no different than a South American dictatorship. The American people are going to choose the lessor of two evils. Biden will be elected.
You may just get what you wish for good and hard .

Trump would never start a war. He is worse at foreign affairs than business. And that is really saying something.
After Fifty odd years in the senate , how many wars has Joe Biden signed off on ?

We know exactly how it would truly work , the leaders will live high on the hog and the rest will barely survive . And it has been tried with the same result every time .

There has never been a true communist state just like there has never been a true democratic state.

Both tend to devolve into authoritarian regimes.

It is impossible for people who see only black and white to understand the nuance of anything.
