    Given that Socio-Capitalism is presently guised under the "Green Movement", will or should, the collective countries [meaning the people defined as citizens of these places, aka the Free World] accept the presented Socio-Capitalistic ideology, to replace a crumbling humanism (democritis effect; democracy), or completely abandon the concept for a thoroughly altruistic global society.

    Are there any fundamental principles of an altruistic society even being paved, prepared and/or offered as an alternative, to the younger populous, should Altrusim take root and/or So-Cap fail.

      The question alone is beyond the grasp of most people because self-interest and short-term profitability are and have been the crux of human effort throughout history. A few social democracies are as close as we're going to get to evolving as a collective society for a while, in my opinion. Even under the guise of altruism, people will still find ways to take advantage of the people they're purportedly helping to further their own agendas. Human nature is inherently self serving and will continue to be so even when we no longer need those instincts to physically survive.

    Altruism is conservative. Profit is shared amongst all. Capitalism is progressive. Profit is retained by the few, which means they are able to progressively  accumulate all the power.

    How is Altruism conservative? What is it conserving? lol.

    If you're implying altruism is a conservative capitalistic vantage point, you would be genuinely mistaken. In actuality, altruism does not even contain the concept of a barter system. It is void of capitalistic practices based on the Democritis Effect.

    Even still, the question is rather straight forward:

    The Green Movement aka Socia-Capitalism, and Altruism, are options for the global society to 'evolve' out of Democratic Capitalism and Socialism. Given that Socio-Capitalism offers harmony-with-earth-for-profit, will society accept it or lean toward a more Altruistic Society. If the later, what plans or fundamentals are being set in motion should such an move take shape?

    Altruism is a human quality. Governments aren't human. As such, any government, regardless of its structure, can only be as altruistic as the people running it.

    Which, really, is exactly why government needs to be limited. So everything doesn't instantly go to hell when (not if) a bad leader comes into power.
