Oftentimes leftists will say that they are "on the right side of history". Aside from the fact that the future is inherently unpredictable, on what other facts were they actually on the wrong side of history that can be used to rebut this?
It's the idea of invoking some higher power behind what you think is right to have a momentary feeling of control in a life filled by feelings of helplessness and powerlessness. It's no different than mudslimes screaming that their "god" (desert sand demon) will punish you for drinking a glass of wine. The correct reaction is to shrug. Don't argue with the mentally ill because their sickness makes them incapable of processing logic. Would you try to "rebut" a hobo yelling invectives at you in the middle of the street?Oftentimes leftists will say that they are "on the right side of history".

Frankly the only reason history seems to veer towards progressiveness is because a general look at history only reveals the changes in society and culture and whatever that were implimented, not the far more numerous shit that was suggested and attempted before being shot down because conservatives successfully opposed or changed said shit for being batshit crazy, stupid, or evil.history drifts "leftward" because rules, customs, and institutions slowly erode over time as well as (for some time now) technology has increasingly reduced restrictions on societies. this just simply means that "left" is anti-tradition whereas "right" is pro-tradition. guess which wins out eventually?
