How can you be against both the left and the right? Centrists?

Yup. All of us. We love straddling that fence.

'Raddle' actually means 'absolute centre' in Bulgarian.

Both the left and right wish to maintain capitalism. The actions of the right, ultimately, function to concentrate capital to the top, to the bussiness owners where it should be. However, when too much goes to the top it creates crisis at the bottom. And average Joe ends up rebelling, or creating revolution.

The left, by providing hand outs like medicare and social security, gives Joe a sense of complacency that prevents them from rebelling.

To be continued...


I lost my train of thought, so I'll leave it like that.
