    I looked left once, got hit by a car coming from the right. The moral is clear here, anyone who concentrates on only one view will get hit by a car.

    OK, genius, tell you your solution then and please don't go on about redistribution of wealth but focus on wealth creation, that is if you are able,

    Actually, over reliance on one particular view will do that. Not only that, but both arguments have a tendency to be dominated by those who live in profound and wilful ignorance of the possibility that they might actually be wrong from time to time.

    Not at all, I am well aware of the failings of the capitalist system, but I still think that you will only find the best by being willing to explore all avenues. Socialism has its good points, capitalism has it good points, both have woefully terrible characteristics as well.
