The American Left consists of individuals and groups, including socialists, communists, and anarchists, that have sought fundamental change in the economic, political, and cultural institutions of the United States. Although left-wing ideologies came to the United States in the 19th century, there are no major left-wing political parties in the US. As a result, Americans frequently use the term "left-wing" to refer to radicalism or even liberalism.
