"What’s more, today’s young people are extremely critical of capitalism and the society we live in...."

Many are critical of capitalism because they have been raised by helicopter parents. This has ill-prepared them to function in a capitalistic system.

Others are critical of capitalism because they do not understand it. Those who wish to be social media creators or online influencers obviously must not understand that it is capitalism that makes this possible for those with the right talent, drive and sense of personal responsibility.

And for those whining about having a 9-5 job, it is capitalism that provides the freedom to seek alternatives.

What capitalism does not do is to provide guarantees or equality of outcomes.
