Unfortunately the only way capitalism can easily be overthrown is by a party's leading the working class to overthrow it, at which point there is always the danger of some new form of capitalism, run by its members. When we get shot of the system there is no problem, though: power-structures are suitable for apes, not people.

The OP specifically referenced capitalism. There are many schools of thought on anarchism.

Communism can work and will work. The proletariat must accept sacrifices and compromises like a good marriage. It requires strict obedience to the state. It requires working toward the states goals above all other goals. In exchange the State provides for everyone according to their need. There would be no need of income or wealth. All would be equal

Mankind as it currently exists is not ready for self governance. That does not change the fact that i believe that it would be the ideal way for hunams to operate their society or that i believe i should advocate for smaller more localized governments giving tje people more control of their destiny. Or that big government i feel is direct threat to personal liberties or that todays american liberals have become extremely authoritarian and are pushing a modern day moral panic mirroring the religious right of the 70s and 80s (even into the 90s).

Religion is nothing but a charade that attempts to compete with the real authority of the State. If people would only shirk this individual right ideology and have allegiance to the State in the same manner that many have to made up Gods. Then we could see a true collective with no need of personal wealth or income, and people coming together to work for the common good of the State in return for being rewarded with each according their need.
