Capitalism promotes consumerism so capitalism is still the problem. People need to deprogram themselves of the propaganda they've been fed all their lives. There are lots of solutions to the problem and more to come.

Mike, the problem is not capitalism. It's crass consumerism
or hyper-consumerism as some would call it.  It leads to
voracious unsustainable consumption of resources.

In fact, this problem existed even in ancient times, a lot
of ancient civilisations collapsed due to rampant tree
cutting and ecological degradation. It soon became
unsustainable.

This is exactly the reason, the entire taxation methodology
must be changed. Taxation should be based on consumption and
not on income.  For instance, if you earn 20,000 $ a month
but spend only 2,000 $ out of that. You put the rest 18,000$
in bank. You should be taxed only for that 2,000 $ you
spent.

The interest rate in banks are artificially low. Some
incentive should be given to people to save money in banks.

Capitalism is the best system for the disabled, sick and old age. Wealth is created abundantly by capitalism which can be taxed and provide a safety net. People can also provide for themselves better and the smart ones save for their future.. Most, if not all, union pension plans are heavily invested in capitalism which pays their member benefits. Ask the people of the former Soviet Union and China if they prefer capitalism or old Soviet central planning with Socialism. Governments don't generate wealth, they just take it away and redistribute it. Free enterprise generates wealth. Ask any rich person or person aspiring to be rich. With an abundance of wealth, good things can be done and planned for. The Soviet Union couldn't clean up they environmental messes they created.

So we all end up like the Soviet Union and pre-capitalist China. Plenty of nothing to go around for everybody. Did you ever see or hear about the Soviet era enviornment? Plenty of mess to clean up but no money to do it. But then we will *make* them do it... for mother Russia!

Capitalism is like candy and the rich like spoiled kids. They just want more and more candy. Hence they get fat and cranky and want their way all the time. What we need to do is take away their candy from them and let them dry out. Otherwise they become a complete drag on society.

Free enterprise is not a bad idea about capitalism run amok is very dangerous. Sometimes you just have to shut things down and spank the miscreants.
