    Leftist philosophers, or philosophers in general? Also, are we talking about people working in universities, or are we including those outside academia?

    You forgot Alex Jones.

    On a serious note: Noam Chomsky, Brian A. Dominick, Peter Singer,
    "I am vegan because I have compassion for animals; I see them as beings possessed of value not unlike humans. I am an anarchist because I have that same compassion for humans, and because I refuse to settle for compromised perspectives, half-assed strategies and sold-out objectives. As a radical, my approach to animal and human liberation is without compromise: total freedom for all, or else."

    "It takes no more time to be a vegetarian than to eat animal flesh.... When non-vegetarians say ‘human problems come first’ I cannot help wondering what exactly it is that they are doing for humans that compels them to continue to support the wasteful ruthless, exploitation of farm animals."

    This isn't a philosophical discussion. This is a YouTube list video.

    Habermas passed away unfortunately in 1979. However he did make many positive contributions to radical philosophy in particular and in general to the movement to overthrow the exploitative and oppressive global capitalist system.

    Alain Badiou, Daniel Dennett, Robert Brandom, Noam Chomsky, and Martha Nussbaum are definitely in the top 5.
