I think the fact that social democracies have the strongest democracies in the world, are the most successful in terms of well-being and happiness, and are far less capitalist than the USA proves you're 100% incorrect.

Also capitalism started while monarchies still ruled the world... so the modern state of the world and history dispute your claim.

There's far more evidence that democracy leads to socialism. The USA has a very weak democracy, such a small population are active voters, even fewer participate in political activities, and the capitalists (those with assets) put their thumb on the scale with massive monetary donations to the parties they support.

Capitalism and true democracy are incompatible.
