This is a very good primer if you've ever been confused by various political terms thrown around by the modern Left, or if you just want a good refresher series

Something we want to address:

We interact with self-identifying “Leftists” on a regular basis.

One constant theme we’ve observed is that many who identify as “Leftist” lack a firm grip on fundamental socialist terms and/or concepts.


As I've grown, I've found myself less aligned with any particular Leftist ideology and more with Leftism as a general concept, a more progressive society by any means necessary. I am more interested in a better world than in the specifics of how we get there

I don't say that as a denigration of anyone more specifically aligned- I feel that urge and I respect it- but I'm, put simply, more worried about apocalyptia than I am concerned about sectarianism

I would broadly define myself as somewhere on the anarchist-communist-syndicalist spectrum but at this point I don't care where we go as long as we get there from here
