    Ecclesiates 10;2,3 The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left. Even as he walks along the road, the fool lacks sense and shows how stupid he is. V;6, Fools are put in many high positions, while the rich occupy the low ones. (NIV).

    - If it isn't broke, don't fix it.

    - The cycle of a woman stands in no correlation to the cycle of a man.

    A wise person chooses the right road, a fool chooses the wrong one.
    This is the true meaning of this verse.
    Right and wrong, not right versus left.

    You do realize that right and left in this sense has absolutely nothing to do with political leanings, right?

    It has everything to do with politics. Chapter 9v13 - 18 refers to a King surrounding a city and a wise man who saved the city with his words. Verse 17 "The quiet words of the wise are more to be heeded than the shouts of a ruler of fools."
