Sorry, but in this context, it refers solely to political view.
It doesn't matter the context, Chair.
It means what it means. You don't get to redefine it simply because of the context.
Not to being "correct" or "on the right side of the body"
A wise man’s heart is at his right hand, But a fool’s heart at his left. - Ecclesiastes 10:2 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ecclesiastes10:2&version=NKJV
Isaiah (inspired by God) seems to have tied both of those definitions together.
It is not wise to be a racist.
It is not wise to be a fascist.
It is not wise to be evil.
Thus, such things are foolish, and therefore "on the left."
Don't put the cart before the horse: the political spectrum uses the idiom of using right or left, not the other way around.
or any other of the definitions of the word, which include such things as:
- a privilege given stockholders to subscribe pro rata to a new issue of securities generally below market price
- the power or privilege to which one is justly entitled
and so on- you can find a dictionary
You of course, being on the political right, think that you are correct. But the political left thinks they are correct too.
You missed it:
if someone is politically "right," that means they are more right than wrong (generally speaking) It doesn't make them right all the time, but it does put them righter than most.
In other words, what I think has nothing to do with it.
At the risk of being banned: Your word game is stupid demagoguery- and I think you know it full well.
In what way am I appealing to the desires and prejudices of ordinary people rather than by using rational argument?
I'm explaining, rationally, how "political right" cannot include things like racism, neo-nazism, fascism, etc, that some on here, you included, want to categorize them as.
You think I'm being irrational?
Then reason it out. Show my why and how I'm being irrational. Don't just assert it.
