All about leadership or lack thereof.

We can starve out Gates, Bezos, Musk, ExxonMobil, etc by simply not buying their stuff for a day or a week or forever. Want a new SIMPLIFIED tax code for us and shut the loopholes? We can insist on it by agreeing to not pay taxes til it happens and it would happen in a week.
The people have never been any good at organizing themselves to the benefit of all.

No matter where you are in this world, the more money you have, the more you can bend the will of the people to your own.

If one can further enrich and empower the rich and powerful, riches and power will be your reward.

What freedom is he taking away
it started in the classrooms, "Don't say Gay" to Banning (burning) books To Clowns dressed as women reading to kids, Drag shows.
trying to shut down Disney world, Guns, anywhere he's talking as there dangerous, Firing elected and appointed government workers that disagree with him. A teacher just quit as she was told to take down a picture of a past President Barack. turning a blind eye on supporters;
Jul 24, 2022 — The extremist group waved swastika flags and antisemitic flags during the conservative movement's conference in Tampa, Florida.

These are only the big NEWS makers

Just small starters as someone in 1936 Germany did.

Money is power, and power gives one access to money.
Democracy is a way to break feedback cycle between the two.

But we have to use it.

2-Inappropriate books for lower grades is not banning
3-You are a subversive wacko
1-Mar 8, 2022 — Florida Republicans on Tuesday passed the Parental Rights in Education bill, which opponents have dubbed the "Don't Say Gay" bill. Sorry I didn't call it by its proper name, but the meaning is the same!
2-It may have started at the lower grades, but has spread to high schools, Florida Colleges, Libraries, Book stores,
That's how Fascism, starts, in small doses, I suggest you read some history books, before there banned.
3-That the nicest thing I've heard in a while, Is that your pickup line in a bar.

He's an old man screaming get off my lawn. Leave the poor guy to his ramblings.

Unmitigated capitalism is a failure. You get global environmental destruction, robber barons, and sweat shops.

Unmitigated socialism is a failure. You get shortages, sky high taxes, and little personal freedom.

I agree with you that neither capitalism nor socialism are fully possible, but all the same, if strictly compared, then capitalism is still better, you can achieve something with your perseverance.

Agreed. At the same time, anything that has limited competition due to geography or it being a necessity like utilities, healthcare or schooling needs to be related by the government.

A mix is a good thing.

Wrong....

Because democracy is the system of choosing ones government.

Money and power can live quite comfortably with or without democracy.

Freedom does not depend on the "ism".

It's basis is in the protection of a particular class. It's more a corruption of a particular system, rather than a feature.

So long as Citizens United is in force, the Golden Rule will prevail. Money is speech, so those with the most Gold will make the all the Rules; same as it ever was and ever shall be....

Here is an interesting video on Socialism, Watch, listen, learn, We Americans accuse many countries as Socialistic, they are not,
You would think to a point that capitalistic corporations would be more social, as a happy health worker is a productive worker.

In some countries (for example, the Scandinavian countries) everything related to utilities and health care is successfully connected with the government. But if we compare it with other countries, then at least we have good quality medicine ... But yes) Mix is good)
