"That's why the capitalists won and will continue to win."
Capitalism then is lot like Moore's Law. It's true until proven false, i.e. until you reach the edge of the cage. The cage being the unpredictability of quantum particles for Moore's Law and the limits of mass production, when relentless competition drives it to near zero margins of profit. Just because something has been true for so long doesn't mean it will be true forever. We're seeing the unravelling of capitalism right now.
