"L, does it always have to be so black and white, don’t you have to do a little bit of both to “get along” in this world?"
That's why I wrote, "The reality is, unless one is biased, it obviously could go either way." Unfortunately, the majority of people are biased, and it's all about "black and white" regardless of whether it's religion, politics, stocks, etc. Most people are not good at unbiased analysis.
"It's easier to fool someone than it is to convince them they have been fooled"....Mark Twain. (bias confirmation, don'tcha know)
