In dialogue with Aman

 "Elizabeth Poor law was put in 1601. There's a separate law to serve the poor and we do not have any of those sorts to serve the poor now." shared Aman, discussing the social work.  

Aware of Elizabeth's story through a few movies and anecdotes, I shared about Anne Boleyn and the way, Elizabeth turned to the queen. 

Our conversation went on including history, politics, and various other streams. 

I shared about my current read, "Behave" by Robert Sapolsky. I shared the mindsets of left and right-wing people. Aman shared why the left is called left and right is called right in politcal context. "During the french revolution, the working class used to sit on the left side and was called Left-wing. The aristocrats sat on the right-wing of the assembly and that's how the ideologies got their names as left and right." Interesting.
