Ummm, not the same at all. You need to do some reading/research on capitalism, socialism, fascism, oligarchy, coporatism, and communism for good
We don't have pure systems of any of the above in the U.S.
If you want an example of an almost 100% socialized system in the United States, study the workings of the public school system. Pretty much everyone
is forced to pay into it, most people wind up having to make use of it, it is controlled by large, top down bureaucratic systems that are tied closely
to government and centralized, the workers are heavily unionized, and only the very wealthy can afford to escape the system. And while you are at it,
study it in-depth in terms of the money poured into it, the relative quality of outcomes, the attitudes the people who work in the system (especially
the administration) take toward their tasks, the corruption throughout.
Perhaps someone else on here can give you a good example of a truly capitalistic system you can contrast it with. There aren't very many left.
