I am worried that these days we are on the wrong side.

Yes. During a portion of my military life, there were two years in which I wondered if I was doing the "right" thing. I don't wish to elaborate on that period nor location, but it weighed on me heavily. I still wonder sometimes, and that was the beginning of me questioning the motives of government.
Much time has passed since then. I don't find that people in general feel secure that their government has the best interest of the citizens, and that general feeling seems to stem from most every person I call friend, across the globe.
I guess in the final analysis, we do what we think is right on a personal basis, and that is our own tiny microcosm of being on the right side. I know that the older I get, the less willing I am to feel that I have any right to persecute anyone based upon a dogma they hold or embrace that I cannot understand. We all have our reasons. We have to be able to sleep at night, our conscious clear and untarnished.
