Food for thought

"The vice of capitalism is that there is an unequal share of blessings; the virtue of socialism is that there is an equal share of misery."

In my opinion, this basically sums up the left-right debate, with the leftlist arguing for more equality and in the process, less efficiency; the rightlist, more effciency and less equality...

I vote for the right ;)

while it's only human to keep things to oneself, the human thing to do is to share it with others.

That's a nice one...

The problem with the left is that sharing has it's limits. When you reach a situation where people don't want to work because they earn more collecting unemployment benefits then they do if they attempt to work, you're gonna have a problem.
With that I agree with Sarkozy in that what the french need is more work (or the freedom to work more than 35h) and not less in the face of globalization. :)
