There have been many attempts throught mans history to make it a more level playing field for all , communism being an example
Communism has occasionally partly succeeded,but ultimately failed.
Communism has only been implemented in very poor, under-developed countries. Russia, China, Vietnam, Cuba, all these countries had no industry, no infrastructure, poorly educated population. In each of these countries, the communist revolution was bitterly fought for by violence, it wasn't a given that everyone wanted it!
Communist governments took power in under-developed countries which had been devastated by wars and revolutions.
Ultimately, these government failed or changed. But in the meantime, most of these once "backwards" countries have developed themselves into capitalist success . China was a dwarf in 1930, they are a giant now. Russia and other former USSR countries have industrialised and educated themselves and have had a lot of success, although many are failing again. Cuba is the richest island of the Caribbean, except for the tiny bank paradises.
Communism, the leveling of society has resulted always in dictatorshipss who repressed their population ruthlessly and broadly. People in these countries demand change, so in this regard it's a total failure.
The people want capitalism..... dont they ?
Even socialism in the UK has failed to attract enough public support given the last most radical socialist agenda for generations proposed by Jeremy Corbyn at the last election was firmly rejected by the electorate.
IMO the majority of people want middle of the road socialist capitalism domestic policies typically as occured under the Blair Labour government.
