Seeing both sides

I think I see both (or more) sides of too many issues.  Seriously.

The "welfare thing" for example.  And lots of others.

It doesn't help me much, when trying to decide whom to defend.  It doesn't mean I think both sides are valid for me.  Or ethical for me.  But it makes it harder to condemn others for some of their positions.  Maybe that's a good thing.

If you are personally attacking the innocent, or stealing or destroying their property (or the value thereof), then I cut you no slack.  This is why I can't excuse cops for their acts.

But, on so many other issues the "black and white" is not so clear... if it even exists at all.  At least as I see it.

Certainty is so much more comfortable.
