To say that capitalism generates monsters seems to me to be a very poor analysis.
It is also necessary to understand that, beyond the positive aspects (compared to previous alienations), capitalism also supposes the economic inequality * which it however claims to resolve progressively (which is obviously not observed) and the societal autophagism. This in addition to not fulfilling its main objective, which is profitability: Western societies have become so rich (with regard to this internal criterion) that they can no longer properly increase this dynamic, except by resorting to artificial palliatives. But it is in reality a constitutive hoax, since it is through plunder that it has been constituted and constantly increased.
As for the notion of exponential economism, if it is more precise than the simple term of capitalism, it does not fully account for the role played by technology; it would be necessary to better translate the real globality of the phenomenon which is a total fact.
WhenABC speaks of Marxist ideology and its focus on redistributive aspects (and the implicit admiration for the industrial revolution which factually authorizes it), he neglects an important part of the work of Marx which constitutes above all a critique of the capitalist economy and, as such, goes much further in the analysis than what its zealots have retained **.
Further, he argues that capitalism can very well do without growth, which is not correct. Growth and capitalism are consubstantial and it is only with great difficulty that the latter resolves itself into stagnation. Of course, there are basins of collapse on the periphery of the central states and even worse, partial collapses internal to that same center, hence, as has been very aptly pointed out. Sen-no-sen space exploration or other projects, as long as colossal sums can be found to be used, while the classical and down-to-earth problems are neglected. This only underlines this obligation which results from a sum invested must find increased after having passed through the market.
* Through increased equality in other areas!
** The contradictions of his writings which always oscillate a little between theoretical criticism and immanent debates have greatly contributed to confuse ideas by orienting them towards the simplest.
