I like your post but disagree with what you said about education. At the 1917 National Education Association Conference at least one teacher was proud of what education had to do with unionization. They were all preparing to defend democracy even more intensely in the classroom and this education also leads to anti monopoly laws, and strong families, meaning less dependence on government. I am out of time, but if you looked at some of the old books I have, you would see the importance of education for transmitting a culture that empowers the people. It is possible to use democratic values and education to empower the people.
Capitalism is antithetical to democracy! Because democracy presumes that everyone is equal and should be treated as an equal. BUT that cannot happen...as we witness reading the news every single day, where the rich cannot be prosecuted for almost any crime..and certainly not to the full extent of the law(serial pedophiles being sentenced to weekends in jail and house arrest)/while the poor can be charged and convicted for just existing in places that those with money are trying to gentrify for their own uses.
And once you destroy democracy by allowing extreme inequalities to exist, education is similarly fragmented to the point where only the rich will get their children educated in the manner you describe, while the poor will be lucky to get any kind of education at all.
