150. Thanks for the synopsis
You should write a comic book about it.

I think this sentence sums things up nicely:

The liberal believes that capitalism has value, but is not the sine qua non of politics.

You have to be pretty pampered to have the luxury of believing this. Saying "capitalism has value" means "I am in a position to benefit from capitalism" and "not the sine qua non of politics" means "lets not talk about that, I rather like capitalism". Your proposed "social changes" sound alot like window dressing to me. Lipstick on a pig and all that..
