Also, how does one "pay" for a whole system? I don't understand this idea of yours.
Then capitalism, as it currently stands, is unjustified.
And I think it would be more correct to say that we do not pay for the whole system, but instead pay for the essential infrastructure that supports capitalism.
By this I mean that essential aspects of capitalism necessarily require certain supports which create costs, and we pay are forced to pay those costs.
For example, contract law. Contract law requires legislators to make it, judges to interpret it, and police or bailiffs to enforce it. These people, and the associated pages, janitors, lawyers, etc. all need to be paid, and they need buildings to work in, etc. And my taxes pay for all of this.
