What did AOC say about capitalism?

Pat covered comments made by AOC when she tool the stage at SXSW 2019 in Austin over the weekend. During her speech, AOC attempted to define "capitalism," calling it an "irredeemable system," adding:

It's hard to have these conversations I think as a society because we all have different ideas of what, just in the public imagination, there are different ideas of what does capitalism mean, what does socialism mean, et cetera.

But, for me, when I think about what those definitions are, capitalism is to me is an ideology of capital.
