Sigh. Capitalism is not a single monolithic object. You said "Yet none of your ilk has ever produced a system that works better", but you seem to be creating your own meaning for his "ilk" and for the system that he was referring to. Avatar never said that capitalism sucks, or that America sucks, he specifically referred to "American capitalism"; I may not agree with him that it is a plague that need to die, but your request for a non-capitalist nation that "outdoes the US" does not directly relate to Avatar's point. Nor mine. If you wanted to refute his claim, you would need to show that American-style capitalism out shows all others, not that America is not "outdone" by anyone else in the ambiguous measurement of "[works better] for the general population at large."
