False Socialism vs Honest Capitalism
Communism and socialism that flourished in the 20th century were not originally based on false or evil motivation.
But they all failed. The Soviet Union collapsed and China changed its paradigm just to survive and succeed. They just focused on the material aspect of individuals, organizations, and a state. Their justice was mainly limited in this scope. If the society and a nation were governed based on material fairness, people would become happy. This was their paradigm. As long as the society and a nation were governed based on material fairness, any control, restriction, and political discipline would not make people unhappy, This was their paradigm. As long as the society and a nation were governed based on material fairness, restriction on freedom of speech, thought, and behaviors would be forgiven. This was their paradigm. And, to achieve and protect the society or nation that were governed based on material fairness, they had to fight against capitalist countries which were suppressing communism and socialism; and this war could be carried out by neglecting any spiritual value of people, since spirit was the secondary matter. This was their paradigm. So, communists and socialists in the 20th century came to be so anti-humanitarianism to fail and collapse, though they were based on some derivative aspects of traditions of Judaism and Christianity.
American or Anglo-Saxon capitalists were honest in the 20th century. And, American or Anglo-Saxon capitalists respected democracy. Indeed, capitalism and democracy were both rooted in the same European or Anglo-Saxon traditions. It was freedom from the Vatican. To be free from rotten and rigid rule by the Vatican, some Europeans and especially Anglo-Saxon people needed democracy and capitalism. In this framework, they could pursue what they wanted: spiritual freedom and material success. (That is also mainly why Japan adopted the American-style democracy and capitalism after WWI to the full extent to be so successful. Japan is still not a Christian country.) But, in having done so, they sacrificed some important part of teaching of the Vatican. Accordingly, evil of capitalism prevailed to a large extent. But, there were materially and spiritually poor people in the Anglo-Saxon countries in a far smaller number than in the Soviet Union and China in the 20th century. Evil of the honest capitalism turned out to be less destructive than evil of false and material communism and socialism.
Now in the 21st century, Russia has introduced a more democratic and free framework into the nation. China has adopted capitalistic economy in spite of controlling people through dictatorial rule by the Chinese Communist Party. But, they are no more countries based on the 20th-century type of communism and socialism. Yet, they will have to struggle to allow their people to enjoy more freedom, democracy, and spiritual value to the extent the US, the EU, and Japan allow their citizens.
And, the biggest question is how the US, other Anglo-Saxon countries, and advanced European countries can correct the simply honest capitalism by leveraging democracy and Christianity. To do so, they might need even Judaism and Islam (for example, Mr. Barack Obama, a son of a Muslim became US President). But, their ultimate goal must be to become a new Vatican. It is because it is the logical consequence, reviewing their origin in history.
