The capitalistic human beings in nature’s communistic system

Question from the Internet:

“Is it possible that in a socialist society that has stores, restaurants, and some production capitalism still exists in some capacity along with socialism?”

Capitalism is the system that fits our inherently egocentric, individualistic, subjective, and competitive nature most.

Communism, a system where we would need to give up our individuality, where we would need to tone down our inherent urges to consume, accumulate everything for our insatiable desires for selfish pleasures, fulfillment is against our inherent nature.

Capitalism without all kinds of restrictions is self-destructive, as instinctively we succeed, survive, grow and develop at the expense of others and Nature like cancer.

Communism — when we try to implement it as we did so far — leads to terror, oppression since even if people support it initially, very soon they revolt, reject it as it goes against their nature they feel trapped, suffocated by it.

Human beings are born capitalists while Nature is a communistic system, where the selfless, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing connections, cooperation creates and facilitates life and optimal, collective development.

Today humanity is literally dying as we are incompatible with nature and we can’t fight against, ignore Nature’s strict, unchanging laws of integration.

So what can we do?!
