    Default Right and left

    A distant cousin sent this to me today. It had been sent to her by someone.
    I thought some of you might find it interesting.

    I have often wondered why the conservatives are called the “right” and the liberals are called the “left.” By chance, I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:

    Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)
    “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left."

    Eccles. 10:2 KJV
    "A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left."


    Hmmm, I guess that sums it up pretty well... YOU CAN'T HAVE A BETTER REFERENCE SOURCE THAN STRAIGHT TEXT FROM THE BIBLE!

    Doesn't the terms left and right politically originate in the British Parliment?

    Liberals sit to the left of the isle and Conservatives sit to the right of the isle.
    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
    C S Lewis
