I think that a drive towards equality - economic, social, and political - is an important component of leftism. That includes anti-capitalism and anti-racism. I think another important component is the desire to uproot the current system entirely and install a new system based on entirely different values and principles - that's why I don't consider Social Democrats to be true leftists because they want to reform capitalism rather than ultimately replace it.
