I think you are right: the best hope for the future is a middle way where the power of the free market to generate wealth is guided by Laws to impose ethical conduct on Capitalist Companies. We need to steer a course between the opposite extremes of Capitalist Anarchy, and Socialist Totalitarian Big Government. Only in the middle ground do you find tolerance, compromise, peace and economic growth if the balance can be kept.

This is why Alt-Right and Antifa zealots are so dangerous: they pull the whole population into one of the extremes so that when the President calls for tolerance and an end to violence, he is cried down by both sides.

I work in IT, Community volunteer interested in Politics, support Capitalism as the best economic system for lifting people out of poverty, Skeptical scientist.
