Suppose I'm basically a capitalist, at least in that I think the best of capitalism, where folks are free to create value for others doing what they are good at, is better than the best of communism, where folks needs might be met, but work is regimented and bland. On the other hand, the worst of capitalism is...well...the slave trade. The worst of communism is the Gualg. So beyond a margin at the top, it's more about details than the basic model.
