Plenty is doing.
"Individual initiative, personal responsibility, private property, savings and productive investment - those strongholds of the adolescent mentality, all of which found their ideal system in Capitalism, and which contributed noticeably to an increase in the standard of living in a material sense-are slowly disappearing. What happened? Why did a system like Capitalism, which created such wealth and improved material conditions for so many, start to become unpopular? In my opinion, significant changes took place over the last 160 years. Improvements in the standard of living, hygiene, medicine and social assistance started producing a new humanity, an ever-increasing number of old people. This growing element began to change the age structure and the mentality of European society. ....Old age has produced a new vulnerability, caused by the feeling of un-self-sufficiency and social dependency. ....Socialism is a result of the wishful thinking of those who are frightened by their inability to cope with a life of competition and the rat-race of Capitalism."
