All Humans Live Socially

We live in a culture. Of course we do; all humans live socially and in culture. And I think we live in a peculiar culture. But what name to give it? Isn't it more difficult to give a name to something that is peculiar? Should we give it a long word? A strange, funny word, or perhaps technical-sounding scientific term? Like: homo economicus! I know! Words are hard: Let's use a lot of math! How easy is it to find a word for something peculiar? Let's just call it “capitalism.”
