Re: “Capitalism isn’t working”

Couple of years ago I noticed this phrase on one of the banners in the hands of left-wing protester in London. I’m finally ready to reply:

My dear friends, please try to understand that UK and most of other “Western Europe” countries in order to fight communism during the cold war period and trying to satisfy its own voters and trade unions actually converged to the socialism during and even after that period. Advantages such as high pensions, child benefits, unlimited unemployment benefits, free education and free healthcare do not really have “capitalist” characteristics. For that reason dear protesters, your banner was wrong. You should have replaced word Capitalism by Socialism or Communism and then you would be correct.
