    Default Origin of Right and Left

    Origin of Left and Right

    I often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right"
    and Liberals are called the "left".
    By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:
    "The heart of the wise inclines to the right,
    but the heart of the fool to the left."
    Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)
    It can't get any simpler than that.
