I know this isn't the place for it but I have to say that it was capitalism that created the wealth of America
It's work and innovation that creates wealth. It's social principles that distribute the wealth and use it to make more. Regulated capitalism seems to produce the best balance of wealth generation, distribution and overall wellbeing.
The USA like all democracies practices regulated capitalism in a pleural economy, the degree of regulation and social principles applied is at the extreme end of the curve compared to others, but it's still has many social systems.
You continue to deliberately confuse socialism with communism. I wonder why you do that?

I'll go with regulated capitalism.
So now you have to explain why capitalism needs regulating. Sounds suspiciously like you want to prevent a few people from controlling all of the wealth instead of just most of it.
But socialism IS just soft communism.
Obvious garbage. Read a dictionary.
Given time that is what it will become.
Also garbage but never mind, until democratic socialism turns itself into a totalitarian dictatorship, let's not call it communism, is it a deal?

Yes capitalism needs to be regulated because humanity IS fallen and prone to the selfish misuse of ANYTHING.
Congratulations, you're now a democratic socialist - a bloody extreme one but still someone that agrees that the state should prevent individuals doing anything they want.
And maybe you don't agree with some forms of distributing wealth but I guess you agree that those with most of it should pay more than those with the least - you don't, I assume want a poll tax? After all tythingnis biblical.
