Michael B says:

I regard all the "Cap and ____ " prescriptions warily, because we know that, whatever theories say--whether capitalist, socialist, or any other "big idea"), in practice people find ways to "work the system" (or even "game" it, as Ross Douthat points out).

In response, please consider that the beauty of capitalism, democracy and diplomacy/defense is that they produce such good results in spite of (a) the complexities of the real world (e.g. Those who would game the system) and (b) countless flaws in their implementation.

In other words, you expressed concern that cap & _________ is too idealistic to succeed in the real world, but it's the thing that has succeeded best in the real world.
