Not every problem someone has with his girlfriend is necessarily due to the capitalist mode of production.
Herbert Marcuse The Listener
And not every problem is solved by the mythic capitalism. It is another creation of humans and thus has its failures too.

True, but then why is a book like
All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
so popular?

People want to distill complex issues down into simple easy to understand bites (social calculus in effect). That it breaks down in 20% of the cases, or 10%, or 5% means little when it works in 80%+ of the cases. The problem, of course, is what to do in those 20% of the cases. They require 80% of the work by the 80-2 rule.
