So it is that thinking folk of conservative views ought to reject the embraces of the following categories of political zealots … Those who instruct us that “the test of the market” is the whole of political economy and of morals. Those who fancy that foreign policy can be conducted with religious zeal, on a basis of absolute right and absolute wrong … Those who assure us that great corporations can do no wrong.

Russell Kirk writing in 1986 at the height of Reaganism.
