WHAT IS LEFT WING & RIGHT WING: DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM



Left wing & Right wing this two words first time used during the French revolution of 1789. In that time people who sat on the Right side of the French national assembly were generally supporters of the king and who sat on the left were against the king and supporters of the revolution. People of first category were named Right wing and people of the second category were named Left wing.
