To simplify things and be as straight as possible, I often describe myself as a very hard-core committed leftist, but truth to tell, I’m bored by political theorizing, felt completely overwhelmed by all the Adam Smith/Karl Marx/ etc. reading in my poli-sci classes in college (and forgot what little I learned two weeks after finals), have no interest in economic theory, and I just realized that my entire line of political thinking is extremely simple: people need to distribute resources (such money, goods, access to health care) more equitably. That’s it.
Since leftists seem to assume that principle to be a given (and yak all day and night about how best to accomplish it), and righties are horrified by its implications, I feel ok as describing my political beliefs as left-wing, but am curious to know if you think that it’s too shallow, naive, insubstantial to be much of anything. Am I a lefty in your estimation?
