I have thought about this issue many times for a few years, but I could never find a satisfying answer.
I tend to believe the American Revolution was a left-wing movement because it focused on the individual's rights rather than duties. But then the "founding fathers" were big on private property and gun ownership, which are right-wing issues. So, was the Revolution a hybrid movement?
And then, after 250 years, which political movement is the closest to the Revolutionaries?
