Too many, but fascism is really no better, only a different style of tyranny. I just don't understand why people feel so attracted to such extremist ideologies that have been known and documented to fail over and over again.
As far as capitalism - that is not a perfect system, but at least it is more democratic and consumers are granted more freedom and have more say. But there are two problems with capitalism: the super rich can easily subvert capitalism and turn it into communism or fascism or socialism or an oligarchy ... that, and it can be easily compromised by corruption via wealthy powerful institutions and influential political lobbyists. The later is what happened to the United States before we became a full-blown socialist country (30-some years ago, btw).
and you'll be able to notice this trending decline eventually.
