All the problems in the world can be traced back to capitalism

Politicians are financially incentivized to prioritize the interests of the wealthy. The wealthy can donate heavily to politicians that serve their interests. The middle class and the poor cannot donate on that scale, and thus it is less lucrative for politicians to attempt to serve their interests.
