I am an Axiological Leftist, I would consider myself to be a eclectic liberal, progressive, and leftist. I will define what I mean by those terms.
Leftist: Belief in or support of the tenets of the political left. In politics are political positions or activities that accept or support social equality, often in opposition to social hierarchy and social inequality. It typically involves a concern for those in society who are perceived as disadvantaged relative to others and an assumption that there are unjustified inequalities that need to be reduced or abolished. Leftist is a widening family of movements, socialism, anarchism, mutualism, minarchism, left-libertarianism, feminist, civil rights, child rights, LGBT rights, mental health rights, anti-war, and environmental movements, Etc.

More on Me
Here is more on who I am if your interested: I am an Axiological Atheist, Antitheist, Antireligionist, Ignostic, Secularist, Humanist, Rationalist, Writer, Artist, Poet, Philosopher, Advocate, Activist, educated in Psychology and Sociology; promoting Science, Realism, Axiology, Liberty, Justice, Ethics, Anarchism, Socialism, Progressivism, Liberalism, Philosophy, Psychology, Archaeology, and Anthropology; advocating for Sexual, Gender, Child, Secular, LGBTQIA+, Race, Class Rights and Equality.
Axiological Atheist explained: axiological (value theory/value science), also considered a constructive form or approach of/to atheism, rejects the existence of gods in favor of a “higher absolute”, such as humanity and the science of value in formal axiology. This form of atheism favors humanity as the absolute source of ethics and values, and permits individuals to resolve moral problems without resorting to gOD. Marx, Freud, and Sartre all used this argument to convey messages of liberation, full-development, and unfettered happiness. Axiological Atheism answers or offers a different thinking to one of the most common criticisms of some forms of atheism. Axiological atheism can be thought to believe in good utilizing the understanding of formal axiology and holds truth in objective morality or universal ethics holding that life can be meaningful showing to that denying the existence of a god(s) does not have to lead to moral relativism, leave one with no moral or ethical foundation, or somehow must renders life meaningless and miserable. I thus as an axiological atheist believe good or basic morality seeing it as natural and evolutionary such as all mammals seem to express or display elements of morality such as compassion, empathy, altruism, group bonding, shame, etc. but we human higher reasoning animals are different or more advanced. We do have higher moral reasoning than animals and can affirm or have intentionality in ethical standards we also can grasp the systemic or big picture and future ramifications to actions animals are more commonly fixed in here and now thinking. Doing helpful supportive things creates more good in the world” is NOT a human-limited concept and does not require some kind of “magic book with super being derived morals it is already hard-wired in us as a survive and thrive nature for beneficial evolutionary adaptation success. The “good brings more good” concept is an inherent and fundamental aspect of reality. In a physics example: you create enough heat, eventually things nearby start burning (making additional heat increases, even though it’s happening independently, or beyond, of your original input).
I am also involved in advocating/activism for the human rights in general but tend to focus on rights of children, women and gender equality including transgender, genderqueer and Intersex people and LGBT as a whole. As well as for Separation of Church and State and universal secularism especially in government and society but also in other groups as well involving both freedom for and freedom from religion and rights of atheists and other nonbelievers or faith questioners.

Rules for radicals?
Well how about no thank you and see it was not “fuck you very much” for trying to run my life with your contrived syllogism to the lives of people you never met? Ok, I am a real radical, and I say “STOP” making “Rules” others who never agreed on anything mind you, must adhere blindly to tour towering perceived authority, meaning about as much to me as the gum on the bottom of my shue. as if your meat expression gives them weight. not the only thing that has power is the hammer of truth you believe others must follow without dissent. Well guess what sunshine, You may not know my name but you’re not the only one who can rub to sticks together mentally. Say my name: “FREEDOM”
I am a mental firestarter, a twisted fire starter and a fucking mental instigator.
