Left, right, and center

In the wake of reading this post at Centrisity I finally came to understand what the difference between the left and right really is. I've read all the definitions but none of them stick in my mind as being meaningful. However, when considered from the perspective of people-centered or power-centered I am finally able to wrap my head around what the difference really is between the two parties.

As Wes Clark once said, the difference between Dems and Repubs is that Dems are people-center and Repubs are weapon systems-centered. That's a pretty straight analogy to me.
