Who owns everything? Capitalist own all the resources. Do you think they will allow them to be nat ...

The article quoted the failings of capitalism.

My frustration is in the "system" you embrace and protect.
NOT in the world as a whole.

Well, your frustration and aggression shows in every thread you start about "Capitalism" and your despair seems to grow.

Apparently you fail to understand that greed is a biological factor in human life and in animal life in general. You see man-made "systems" and want to destroy the system that brings the most wealth to its subjects. That is deplorable. You can always take the high mount of moral consternation about inequality. To me, that is the simplest way to respond. It absolves you of the duty to think about the issues harder.

The people benefitting from Capitalism are more numerous than the rest of the world. Maybe it's a fifty-fifty share. Half a century ago, Capitalism benefitted far fewer people, and far more people were living in abject and dire circumstances, either inside the Second world (ie. the comm unist empires) or the developing nations.

That is not to say that I believe the whole rest of humanity will one day live in prosperous Capitalist society. I don't even wish for that. But I am saying that only Capitalism also produces its own antidote, its drugs that immunise people against Capitalist fever. Ideally, this antidote is going to be mass-produced and applied.

Because the alternative really is bleak: We people are Earth's worst parasitic infestation. We are worse than bacteria. We proliferate while the food lasts and we will all go extinct along with all other species.

Here is why others matter....
People looking out for each other, have less things to worry about.
"you got my back, I have yours"
Facing serious problems are simpler and easier to resolve, if these problems are shared.
How can we as individuals, cope with life burdens (finding food, place to live, etc.)
We need others to make life easier.
It is through others, we thrive.

Famous saying.....
"We are a product of others"

We are born from our parents (others)
Our thoughts are based on our experiences (others)

You are racializing things and making some of the bitterest racist remarks I habve ever endured in my life!
We Whites are not the only ones responsible fgor wars. All other peoples produce plenty of conflicts among themselves. In point of fact, thanks to the spread of the European institutions such as the Red Cross, the Doctors Without Borders, Oxfam, UNO, UNESCO, millions of human lives can be saved and are saved. The number of wars has decreased and the number of fatalities in wars has gone down dramatically (OI know this is difficult for you to accept but it is a fact).
And colonisation is something that others are committing now, not the Whites any more. Whether Asian or Afgrican, colonisation has been practised in the developing world not just since Europeans did it but longh before and even today.

What has colonisation to do with Capitalism"? The Burmese drove 700'000 Rohingyas out of their ancestral Rakhine state and are filling it up with Buddhist Burmese now. Do you think they are beholden to "Capitalism"? Ridiculous! Did China want to invade Bhutan for capitalist" reasons? Again: No. Ethiopia and Erythrea have had a standing conflict over territories for over twenty years; what has "Capitalism" to do with that?

The reason for colonisation is to extract the natural resources.

The trouble is that no one rteally cares about Earth except we environmentalists. You professional demonstrators and protestors dont. You wouldn't have a raison d'etre if Capitalism didn't exist. Only in Capitalist society are people free to rant against Capitalists and actually get something done; elsewhere demonstrations are masterminded by the ruling cliques in order to get their exploited masses to agree with the dictators who denounce the Capitalists (even though they select Capitalists to help them develop their backward developing turfs and keep the dictators safe in their palaces with golden toilet seats! ).
