Capitalism rewards innovation (sometimes), but consistently punishes robustness.

Capitalism tends towards tiny margins. Systems will be stretched to the absolute limits daily and are completely incapable of coping with anything beyond that.

Robustness include redundancy and spare capacity. No robust system can compete in the 21st century free for all of unregulated capitalism.

Meanwhile, neoliberalism demands that every system essential for human life be removed from governments and given over to capitalism. We call this democracy, but it seems more like a Divine Right of Oligarchs.
