To address the social issue, you are correct. Something else needs to be done to address this issue since capitalism produces all kinds of economic extremes from poverty to great wealth and everything in between. There is nothing wrong with placing safety nets and social programs into such a system. It is the humane thing to do.
What I am saying is that capitalism has a tendency to cultivate greed to the extent that it becomes destructive. Although I am greedy, I would rather go back to horses if it meant that it would save the lives of innocent people who are being killed for the sake of having oil.

I recognize there are some who comprehend what that means, and others who don't. There will those who take action, and those who don't. It's the groups who try to exploit the "don'ts" who cause the hate.
If capitalism, and I'm not referring to pure capitalism where anything goes, but capitalism in the broad modern sense, created hate among humans, people wouldn't be trying so hard to get to the United States to give their dreams a try.
