That makes no sense. Capitalism created the middle class. Literally, free market capitalistic entrepreneurs created the mercantile system, creating an entirely new class of people who previously didn't exist. Now your'e saying the only thing to save capitalists and the middle class of small business owners, managers, skilled workers, is to contain them with socialism, which is govt telling them what they can and cannot make, sell, buy, etc, through a centrally planned economy (the only one a govt can control). Seems kind of...wrong.
Workers Around the western world, from the US to Russia revolted against the excesses of captialism and the result was labor riots, and the rise of communist movements. Britain, france and the US ONLY avoided a communist revolution thru the legalization of labor unions.
It was labor unions that gave us weekends off. Labor inions and strikes that gave us decent pay and benefits.
But even that could not stop Captialism from bankrupting the world thru stupid stock speculation scams in 29.
And what was Captialisms answer to the crash? Do Nothing.
By 1932 the entire western world was in a depression.
On this wave FDR and the democrats swept to power and instituted socialist systems for getting the people working again. They created social security and RAISED taxes on the rich- they REGULATED banks- and they borrowed money to build the infrastructure that, ten year later, would be the sole reason US industry was able to massively outproduce every other nation combined to end WWII.
ALL of that, Socialism.
And when that war was won, it was government socialism that created the VA to take care of vets, that provided the G.I. Bill to help veterans into home ownership.
It was Socialism that created the Home Mortgage interest deduction- that Enabled americans to own their own home... ( y'know- the deduction the GOP in the US just took away to the surprise of many middle class americans who saw their taxes go UP by thousands of dollars after being told they would get a tax cut? )
It was socialism that built the interstate highway system- NOT private enterprise- and that highway system TRIPLED the GDP of the US permanently.
Oh, and it was socialism that landed men on the moon.
So, seriously... if you don't understand a concept such as collective action by government using taxpayer funds to benefit the entire community, state or nation, then you really ought not be making unsupported pronouncements about what captialism has done.
Socialism can not Replace capitalism- that would be disastrous.
But capitalism, all on its own, is ALSO disastrous.
The interests of the individual MUST be BALANCED with the interests of the community for a decent society to thrive.
Stop demonizing things you don't comprehend.
