5 Arguably, the paleoconservative strain of America conservatism criticizes not capitalism per se but rather globalization. While neither the Tea Party nor Donald Trump’s supporters are explicitly paleoconservative movements, they share with the paleos a deep suspicion of global capitalism (Kolozi, 168).

21 Today’s neoconservatives somewhat resemble earlier warrior reformers like Roosevelt in that their principal complaint about capitalism is that it undermines the heroic virtues that an empire requires of its people. Gradually, however, neoconservatives came to accept—indeed, often celebrated—the legitimacy of capitalism. Some went so far as to claim that capitalism promoted moral regeneration.
