The fact that Google is a product of capitalism while Communism hasn't produced much more than class-whining and sociology professors is a pretty strong measure of their relative successes as well.

"really...what google are you using?"

The one where people have some sort of baseline proficiency with a search engine and know how to use quotations in their searches.

Including both terms without quotes pulls up every reference to either word. In the case of your search, both searches will pull up every instance of "failed" as well as every instance of either "capitalism" or "communism". People discuss capitalism more than communism, but discuss failure in conjunction with Communism more often than Capitalism.
