Indeed, but I can tell that neither capitalist sells as much (and as well) as the socialist does.

I reject the alternative you propose because we know it's an even worse system. A better system isn't all THAT different from what the US has - it will have greater taxation and more generous social policies, yes, but the core will not be radically different from what the US is doing nowadays.

I don't teach bad values in my home. Like greed is good and defend greed because you got a shot at being rich.
I wish I had been taught how to become rich quick
I actually work for a nonprofit research organization, a work I actually like, despite the ups and downs that come with any job it's also fulfilling and useful for society (particularly now, because I work on stuff related to vaccinations), has decent pay and great benefits and good environment. And yes, I fear failure - why wouldn't I? I took large debts (for Chilean standards) to come here, and I have to pay them. If I don't, then my family will. So of course I work hard and do my best not to fail. I don't want to burden by 60+ years old mother with my problems. And I also happen to like my job, in all.
Care to explain why wouldn't I fear failure?

It is this:
Here is one of the founder's of the NAACP (he is not worried about greed and getting his--he is worried about expanding democracy):
They always say don't do the rocking of the boat. Just accept all that shitty greed. Shut up and love it.
I quote Nancy Reagan when referring to drug war problems...."Just say no."
His story is of course respectable, but I also respect immigrants who just want to work hard, respect the law of the receiving country, try to learn about it and its society and are generally respectful of others. I don't expect immigrants to be super-moral human beings, because I'm not.

No one is making them a crime. They are just being made a joke
, if you watch the likes of Maduro or those who buy into postmodern crap - and it's totally self-inflicted.
