"The United States economy is a Capitalist rather then a communist economy"
-Economics textbook
"Globalization is run by capitalist pigs, but us potsmoking unwashed student types are going to stand up to your opression by eating granola instead of Lucky Charms and drinking strained carrot juice instead of Pepsi. To show our opposition to your evil capitalist establishment, we will act morally superior at all times, be very depressed about the state of the world, and occasionally go to protests and carry signs"

5
One who supports the ideals of a capitalistic or free society. Such a society has no restrictions on what individuals may do aside from initiating force against other individuals. Therefore, no one may harm or steal from another.

This allows for a very large degree of individual freedom, as people may do anything that they so choose so long as no one else is harmed. It also results in a strong economy, as people are only able to consume as much as they are able to produce. Therefore, no one becomes burdensome or a "drain" on society. Anyone who is unable to produce enough to survive is helped by others through charities as opposed to taxation (or theft).
The United States of America is not a capitalist country. No capitalist country exists today. However, the countries closest to capitalism tend to have the most success.

A capitalist society is a free society.

Socialists hate capitalism because they fear liberty.
