A strong faith in capitalism as the only acceptable economic system, and a belief that all problems can be solved by the free market. Often identifiable due to rabid rantings against socialism and communism as evil at the slighest mention of a social program, or suggestion that the government should provide something for everyone. Vicious commentary about freeloaders when talking about welfare is also a sign.

It can often be seen in staunch libertarians as they talk about how everything should be privatized, though it's often present, maybe not as strongly, in many republicans.

Is often associated with a very strong belief that a person is defined by their work - perhaps influence by the protestant work ethic?
