Essays are non-CPOV pages in which you can write from a leftist POV but not CPOVper se. In an Essay, it's not necessary to provide citations, and you can write from your own personal perspective, e.g. Maoist, social democratic, etc. Also, you may sign (add your username to) an essay you wrote.
No insults allowed. Non-leftists can make essays or responses to leftist articles, too.
