I agree with all that Eddie says. Your views just will not work, although the sentiments are probably good. I recommend reading the chapter on Capitalism in 'Sapiens sapiens' by Yuval Noah Harari. I did not understand every word, but that chapter made more sense about capitalism than anything I'd heard before.

It is all very well to have idealistic solutions, but it is the practical working solutions that are needed and, because the general human capacity to find ways of getting through problems has, in the long run, ensured our survival, I think the positive actions and ideas will be and do enough to carry our species forward.
