Here's a question I don't recall being asked anywhere: Are capitalism and socialism actually polar opposites - apples and oranges, black and white? The norm is to discuss them as though they are, yet it is easy to make the case that practically all cultures function with a mix. I will note that capitalism is an economic system while socialism can be an economic or a governing system.

A second question, also not usually the main topic of discussion: What is the allure of capitalism? What are the fundamental anticipated superior aspects of it over the different forms of socialism (only rule is that its features can't be defined by listing socialism's weaknesses)?

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
