Materialism is a problem. But I am not sure what free men lived for before capitalism. The masses lived a feudalistic life style. Maybe free men lived for pleasure or power.

If you live the life Socrates lived for questioning the assumptions you live with is inevitable. Not too many people are open to consider that their judgements are wrong. Changing your mind requires humility.
