You are incorrect. REGULATED capitalism can, potentially lead to such things (though, again, since it is inherently competitive, there are going to be issues... vide some societies that AREN'T capitialistic and are also cooperation oriented and you can see the differences). Pure capitalism as such is an inevitable race to the bottom overall. The exceptions will inevitably fail. (Hence, the Tragedy of the Commons... which will always happen, because it only takes ONE dishonest or greedy person without any external control mechanisms in place to throw the system The Virtuous Cycle requires government oversight, cooperation and investment. When any of those falter, it's going to turn into the Vicious Cycle. Even Adam Smith admitted it took God to keep capitalism on course. There is no evidence that, without a strong guiding hand, you ever get capitalism to accomplish anything resembling "public good". Which is probably (meaning "absolutely certainly") an initial precondition if the goal is "Mass Ascension." If your fundamental system mechanics don't actually lead to your stated goal, you're maladaptive at best and, most likely, your stated goals aren't your actual goals, whether that's implicit and there's a lack of awareness or internally explicit.
