Capitalism arrived from human nature; socialism is a product of human hubris that we can change human nature.

So far, it does not work, and we still have capitalism, which gives young people the freedom to chose. Hence, only thanks to capitalism, young people now have the freedom to chose giving up their freedoms in exchange for the promise that the dictatorship of the collective can provide better welfare.

So far, socialism brings poverty and deprives people of the freedom to chose between socialism and capitalism.
