 Left-wing politics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In politics, left-wing, the political left or simply The Left are terms that refer to the segment of the political spectrum typically associated with any of several strains of socialism or Social Democracy/Democratic Socialist and Social liberalism, and defined in contradistinction to its polar opposite, the right-wing.
The nobility, members of the Second Estate, generally sat to the right.
Many Greens deny that green politics is "on the left"; nonetheless, their economic policies can generally be considered left-wing, and when they have formed political coalitions (most notably in Germany, but also in local governments elsewhere), it has almost always been with groups that would generally be classified as being on the left.

In his essay "Left and Right: the Prospects for Liberty" [1] and "Confessions of a Right-Wing Liberal" [2], Murray Rothbard even put libertarianism on the "left", claiming that conservatives are the right and socialists merely "middle-of-the road".
This interpretation of "far right" especially lost favor in the decades following the Revolutions of 1848 as a return to the Ancien RĂ©gime became increasingly implausible.
