We all know the good results. This is for the examples of unethical things you find on your daily life (like ad manipulation, exploitation of poor workers, taking advantage of addiction....)

I think capitalism as a model has outlived its usefulness and its problems (or as marx would say: internal contradictions) far outweigh its benefits. a shortlist of problems primarily caused by capitalism:
- world hunger. We produce enough food to feed every person on earth. The problem is that capitalism is in charge of distribution. It is under capitalism often more profitable to throw away good food than to prevent people from starving.
- homelessness. same argument. There are enough houses to provide everyone with a roof above their heads.
- Anthropocenic Climate Change. the continuous push for increased consumption and productivity is killing our planet in many horrific ways. This violence is normalised and celebrated through capitalism.

While I can try to elaborate a marxist critique of capitalism, I think there are others that can make a more compelling case. Contrapoints for example has the right aesthetics in her lighting.
