You originally claimed capitalism leads to innovation. Now you're admitting that lots of great inventions came out of socialist or communist countries (which is true). Yes, many inventions had to be taken to capitalist countries to reach the masses, but that's where capitalism shines-making/distributing stuff efficiently. Nobody disputes that. It's hard to motivate workers in a socialist country where they'll get the same things whether they work hard or not. It's also hard to motivate them in a capitalist country if they don't have a stake in the company (i.e. they make more if the company makes more).YEt capitalist countries thrive, while socialist fall, even if something good created there, their inventors go to capitalist countries to actually make it happen. nikola tesla, sarnoff of the RCA (came from russia) Sikorski, also came from russia, and hundreds more, they build their enterprises here, not there. All the major enterprises that affect the whole world are created by capitalists, show me great inventions from socialist countries. i can not think of a single one. why do their bright minds get nowhere, or in gulags, and those who come here especially basically create the modern world.
Don't blame the education system. Blame the race to the bottom in terms of pay. Why should people do anything beyond the bare minimum needed to keep their jobs if there is no reward for it? We now have crony capitalism in the US. Those who already made it get to dictate the terms which keep competitors out.It is really what they want you to think, a bunch of entitled lazy socialists that modern education system creates in last 30 years do not make this country better. just look around.
