Capitalism's failure: The top 1% officially have more money than the whole middle class

China has slave labor.


The US does though if you feel like dying on that hill.

Western free markets and capitalism have done more to pull the world away from poverty than anything else in world history.

No, also free markets literally do not exist.

Socialism has done more for poverty alleviation than you can even imagine.

It drives innovation.

It holds it back in a lot of cases, only what is profitable enough is "worth" researching.

Also a staggering amount of what you think of as capitalist innovation is from government funded research.

Like cell phones for example (invented in the USSR) would be impossible without government funded research.
