Attributing all of human progress to capitalism is incredibly reductive.

But it isn't… Capitalism allows for economies of scale, without which many of the things that allow for today's standard of living would not be available to you.

Find me a list of countries rated by Standard Of Living where the more capitalistic US is doing better than countries with more socialist policies (like Norway, Finland, Denmark, the UK, whatever) and we can then discuss how best to raise the standard of living...

Oh look at that. Europe has the highest suicide rate by region. 50% higher than the Americas. Yes, because when your standard of living is high you totally want to kill yourself. Makes total sense to me.
