This study compared capitalist and socialist countries

in measures of the physical quality of life (PQL), taking into account

the level of economic development. The World Bank was the

principal source of statistical data for 123 countries (97 per cent of the

world's population). PQL variables included:

1) indicators of health, health services, and nutrition (infant mortality rate, child death rate,

life expectancy, population per physician, population per nursing

person, and daily per capita calorie supply);

2) measures of education (adult literacy rate, enrollment in secondary education, and enrollment

in higher education); and

3) a composite PQL index.

Capitalist countries fell across the entire range of economic development

(measured by gross national product per capita), while the socialist

countries appeared at the low-income, lower-middle-income, and

upper-middle-income levels. All PQL measures improved as economic

development increased. In 28 of 30 comparisons between

countries at similar levels of economic development, socialist countries

showed more favorable PQL outcomes. (Am J Public Health 1986; 76:661-666.)

Actually, A Bug's Life is a Right-Wing narrative through and through. It glorifies monarchy, and it presents the oppressors as a different race that's invading from the outside. If you want a Left-Wing narrative, watch Antz.

It doesn't glorify monarchy though, because there is none to really speak of. The Queen ant is basically the leader but she has few if any privileges and the princess is also. And at the end they reduce themselves into an international commune of sorts with minor government of what is essentially an elected monarch/dictator.

Antz does this more openly however because that's the main plot-line, while in A Bugs Life its more focused on aspect of the oppressive imperialist Hopper

Capitalism did not, in fact, make the iPhone. Labor did. The ‘-ism’ merely determines who gets paid. Also, most of the technology present in the iPhone actually originated in the State sector, not the so-called ‘free market.’
the only capitalist part of the iphone, its marketing. Its actual design, components etc. etc. are government funded and researched thus making the phone itself a product of the state. Making it a publicly sold item doesn't make it a capitalist creation, it is a capitalist use of a non-capitalist creation.
As Mariana Mazzucato writes in an article for New Scientist, “In [Apple’s] early stages the company received government cash support via a $500,000 small business investment company grant. And every technology that makes the iPhone a smartphone owes its vision and funding to the state: the internet, GPS, touchscreen displays and even the voice-activated smartphone assistant Siri all received state cash. The US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) bankrolled the internet, and the CIA and the military funded GPS. So, although the US is sold to us as the model example of progress through private enterprise, innovation there has benefited from a very interventionist state.” It is not the case even in theory that capitalism or ‘the free market,’ made the iPhone. At least, not the sort of capitalism people who make this argument usually advocate for.

I would also like to mention that slave labor is used to mine cobalt in the Congo, which eventually makes its way into iPhone batteries. So you can claim (falsely) credit to capitalism for the iphones tech and take the L for its use of slave labor OR admit that it has nothing to do with capitalism

"I was a little nervous when I landed in the USSR. I thought that maybe I would see a hunted country with a crowd of gloomy people, thinking like robots, and intelligence agents listening to my room. I saw a country of one hundred nationalities living together in harmony. No weapons. No crime. No prostitutes. And not a single homosexual, "
