Description

We use the terms left and right all the time - but where did they come from, and what do they mean?

Here’s a little disclaimer, we’re both a little bit lefty, so if you think this is biased or inaccurate in any way - let us know and we’ll have a debate about it - and if we’ve got something wrong or misrepresented an idea or belief, we’ll change it, or at the very least tell you why we’re going to stick with our guns.

LEFT & UALITY EQ velling Le e th g playin field RIGHT right FREEDOM Freedom from interference & control BOTH OF THESE ARE LINKED. PART OF THE ‘FREEDOM’ THAT THE LEFT WANT IS THE FREEDOM FROM INEQUALITY AND POWER IMBALANCES THAT COME FROM THE GAP BETWEEN RICH AND POOR THE LEFT THINKS B U T T H A T society SHOULD BE E Q U A L I T ’ S because there are N O T. 2 CLASSES RICH & POWERFUL POOR & POWERLESS & what is it all about? THE LEFT equality idealist focus on society people before profit progressive THE RIGHT competitive realist traditional focus on individual free trade but UALITY EQ veryoneeve Freed E hi om to can acme f sa e suail or cceed outcom THE RIGHT THINKS THAT FREEDOM MEANS ALLOWING EVERYONE TO ACHIEVE WHAT THEY CAN WITH THEIR PARTICULAR SKILLS AND TALENTS.

LEFT & RIGHT IS NOT ALL OR NOTHING NO ONE SHOULD EVER BE FORCED TO CHOOSE BETWEEN FEEDING THEIR CHILDREN AND HEATING THEIR HOMES A L L PEOPLE & POLICY IS COMPLICATED AND HAS MANY FACTORS.
