       Capitalism only works when there is scarcity. You can't make money from something that people can get for free.
     When scarcity doesn't exist capitalism pollutes it (fresh air, clean water, etc.), thus attempting to create scarcity.

      and you must also believe that people are inherently lazy to buy any of the ideology.

      people are not inherently lazy.  it is a ridiculous assumption given what the human race has produced over tens of thousands of years.

      we get a lot of satisfaction from creating damn near anything, but especially things of use.
