Why choose intel?
1. better performance in just about everything

If you're willing to pay. Not everyone need the top performing CPU on the market.

2. lower power consumption

A very valid point, but irrelevant on the desktop area (unless you live somewhere where electricity is expensive, maybe?). Quite valid for laptops though.

3. more overclocking headroom

Really? You think that will make people choose Intel? 90+% of the people don't even know what overclocking is.

4. chipsets 'just work' and don't tend to have bizarre compatibility problems.

As do AMD's.

Sure, there's plenty of scenarios where Intel is a better choice. But there's plenty of others where AMD is the best choice.

Again, the need for parents to leave money for their descendant's to have a home is yet another flaw in the system. It just proves that getting decent housing is inaccesible/too hard.

NEEDS should be covered by the goverment. And leaving money for you children to afford luxuries is sort of not-capitalist, because it means they got free money just for being your children (which is something we inhereted from feudalism/monarchies, and not actually capitalist).

Because building for my family's future is one of my primary motivators. I'm not just in it for myself. If I die I want my kids to receive the same education they would if I were still alive. The government already takes half of what I earn, and I will do everything legally possible to give them nothing more when I die.

Maybe the real issue is that your goverment isn't actually providing education for your own children. Your dependency on being able to leave capital to you descendants is merely a symptom of that actual problem.
