Buddha preach the only wiev:

Sabbe sankhara anicca.
Sabbe sankhara dukkha.
Sabbe dhamma anatta.

The rest is for fun ;)
Sabbe dhamma anatta

Compare the view to the four noble truths and apply the eightfold path when upholding that view.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

My understanding is that we should cultivate Right View (
Samma Ditthi) Seen things as they are.

This is to be done by practice and concentration. I found it was very dificult to practice non attachment. So I started practicing non anger (Metta). It did not cost me anything!
