Those are extreme cases... Socialism doesn't mean Totalitarianism.

Markets need to be controlled in some way so everyone is playing on a level playing field. Without regulation and oversight, large corporations do not have people's interests in mind and would screw over people to get profits for shareholders. A great example of this is in China where capitalism is unfettered and large companies have huge amounts of power and sway. Terrible working conditions, low wages and mass environmental pollution.

Again, very different than small businesses in small town USA.
