The French revolution is often held up as the beginning of the Modern Age and our turning away from God. The real beginning, however, was the American revolution as the American colonies overthrew their rightful king and instead placed their fate in the hands of a constitution written by Freemasons. (And the seeds for that beginning were the actions of the heretic Martin Luther). But the French revolution is more useful in terms of understanding our present condition as it was the revolutionary French who set the stage for what was to follow.
The description of the political spectrum as left versus right originated in the French revolution.
The terms “left” and “right” appeared during the French Revolution of 1789 when members of the National Assembly divided into supporters of the king to the president’s right and supporters of the revolution to his left. One deputy, the Baron de Gauville, explained: “We began to recognize each other: those who were loyal to religion and the king took up positions to the right of the chair so as to avoid the shouts, oaths, and indecencies that enjoyed free rein in the opposing camp”.
Even back then the left were employing their usual tricks. By willingly adopting the terms right and left, those who were loyal to religion and the king played into the left’s hands. Just over 200 years later we still use the same terminology but we have forgotten its origins. This is as it was intended.
