Yes, but the opposite of capitalism is simply sales tax. Fighting capitalism with socialism is like herding cats with a siren.

Capitalism both works for and fails us because it is used deceptively, and any anthropocentric philosophy will be extractive unless we uncivilize (remove the walls between humans and Nature) and reverse the choice to consume rather than create/contribute to our place.

You can’t unring the dinner bell of the capitalist market idea, but you can turn the wheel and steer it from the engine room: the checkouts.
