    To paraphrase Sir Winston; Capitalism is terrible, it's just  better than anything else that has ever been tried.

    The self-cleaning effect of capitalism is to be eliminated.

    Don't sell the social functionality of the company.

    Seems to be the only system that works with large and diverse populations. Things like Socialism and even Communism have worked in small, insular communities; think the Amish and some of the Victorian era attempts at commune building in upstate NY. But that kind of top down collectivism is hard to pull off long term across differing regions and populations (which is why the Soviet Union failed and why China has to engage in such human rights abuses to make it stick).

    Capitalism has many flaws but the alternatives are all worse.

    Of course capitalism is not the only system. Historically there have been others, such as feudalism and hunter-gatherers. And there are alternatives now, specifically a society without classes or government, based on production for use (Socialism).

    It’s not the only system but definitely one of the best if not the best. Nothing is perfect but Socialism, communism, fascism, and others like it are absolutely terrible.

    Democracy is better. Capitalism doesn’t take into account the human factor.
