their apologists

Do you consider middle class liberals to be capitalists? People who believe in capitalism as an ideology? Or only the people who own the means of production?

Depending on context I use to word in both the last two ways.

Marxists generally use it only to describe the ruling class. Anarchists use it to describe anyone that supports a free-market capitalist ideology (liberals, republicans, social democrats, etc.) regardless of their personal wealth. But we usually just say 'liberal' instead of 'capitalist'.
