    And what about the scores of other inventions/ideas made under the free market system? Surely the majority of them are fruits of free thinking individuals seeking to prosper.

    None of the TSR mods or owners have turned around to MHoC and told them to shut-up and remember they're essentially those kids at lunchtime who sit in the classroom and pretend whatever mindless drivel they're spouting matters, when everyone else is outside.

    It's even worse then Islamic extremism! I'm sure all those living under ISIS' regime are glad they aren't victims of Islamophobia!

    Both Capitalism and Socialism shouldn't be totally dismissed as all the developed countries (apart from the US) incorporate aspects of both. I personally support Bernie Sanders interpretation of Socialism in which he promotes social mobility over state/collective ownership of all property

    massive gap between rich and poor
    why? how is having a gap inherently bad? what if a gap leads to the poor having more in terms of the raw amount that they tend to have? surely the want of a lessened gap is just an emotional desire for aesthetics that please society more so than they actually help society? what would happen if you took from the rich to give to the poor via taxation? I'll answer with some generalities: typically you'd get less jobs, less production, more tax avoidance, more migration of the rich, less tax revenue for government spending etc. compare countries which were formerly (relatively) resourceless: hong kong/singapore, and vietnam/laos.

    Inequality, for with that, there would be no racism, classism, sexism, lack of money, lack of food, lack of anything.
