Why Do Clocks Turn Counterclockwise

Why is clockwise counterclockwise

When you look at another person who is right handed, their right hand is across from your left hand yet you say they are right-handed.

 

 

 

When you look at a clock and its hands are turning to the right you say this is clockwise. From the clock's perspective though, its hands are turning counterclockwise. Why?

The answer is because people are more important than clocks and when this rule was made it was put up for public debate and because clocks did not have a Political Action Committee in Washington D.C. at the time, they just have to live with the rules and regulations established by other governing bodies.
