I am afraid that capitalist systems are aiming too much at big and fast profit, performance at all cost, "being and appearing", while neglecting mutual respect, sustainability, fair play, human and environmental rights, or dealing with overpopulation in a respectful way.
Glory, success and ownership - i.e. dominance, control over others, wealth and privileges - count much more than real democracy. In too many cases, power and wealth, spiritual lead - or extreme abdication, too many sacrifices, or too much piety and devotion - can become addictive, and ambitions too extreme. This is one of the absurd or pervert parts of human nature, and it is also the chemistry of the brain's reward system, which drives actions, reflections and intentions.
Too much power, too much wealth, too much control, too many privileges, too much boredom, or too much suffering, too much abstinence, etc., can compromise the inner balance, lead to excesses and "drive people crazy".
And it is the same with systems and ideologies; they will automatically go on crash course, as soon as they are shifting into extremes.
And in all the cases, fighting human misery (after having dealt with emergencies) should not just address the symptoms of the "disease", but the very roots, which involve attitudes, "traditional" principles and values, superstitions and false beliefs.
Why, for instance, must "the cobbler's children go barefoot" ?
Who among us did not happen to yield to temptation - when our dosis of treats and "guilty pleasures" seemed to be lacking, too small or too rare - like eating the whole bar of our preferred chocolate, instead of the dosis of 10 % ? All the more if you had to follow a boring diet for weeks? The same applies to many kinds of drinks even if they have been created by certain green fairies - lol.
