Thus, pure neoliberal economists, bankers, some politicians and others are against any kind of social controls over markets (in the narrow or broad sense above). As stated before, liberals have a much rosier view of capitalism than they care to admit and turn a blind eye to its dark side and so have historically been willing to do whatever it takes to save it.

The point is: does it matter whether these beliefs come from an individual's self-reflection or whether, instead, they come exogenously to the individual, as part of a religious or spiritual package? The cornerstonebelief of communitarian liberalism is that rights and responsibilities are intrinsically boundtogether: all rights must be balanced against responsibilities and vice versa. Religion is another major component of nationhood. These rights constitute a ‘private sphere’, which should be untouched by government.
