Do you really think capitalism is so great?

With the rich having far greater chances to be succesfull than the poor (contacts, corruption and expensive schools e.g.), the rich countries obviously expoiting the poor (pumping mineral resources from them), cynism in politics - domestic (corporate lobbies) and foreign (everybody still trying to get their sphere of influence).

I still dont have my opinion clear about this so dont call me a communist - and I definitely do not like the policies done by the former USSE, but that was not communism but totalitarianism.
