Self-analysis and the anticapitalist impulse

Why Do Intellectuals Oppose Capitalism?
by Robert Nozick (from a Cato Institute Policy Report, January/February 1998)

Interesting thoughts relating to social hierarchy, resentment and schooling, as well as the allocation of resources under capitalism and the possibly contradictory nature of the anticapitalist impulse as the product of a feeling of superiority on the part of the intellectual classes.


Might these posited motivations offer a unique source of powerful analysis?
