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.
