A true free market is squashed like a bug by both. You cannot enjoy the fruits of your labors when everyone else is just sticking their hands in and taking what they want. In both cases it always devolves into a monopoly on power. Capitalism morphs into corporatism, where they folks at the tip of the pyramid are siphoning off everything from the base up, and in socialism the same thing occurs - they just call it "the dictatorship of the proletariat" to make the proletariat feel good about it, but it's the guys in the dachas who are getting the benefit, and hold all the power.
BOTH are "collectivist" - the only real difference is which guys (who aren't you) are collecting the rent from everyone else.
