I am fully on agreement, and are surprised that Steve Heeren knows of no 
left-Heideggerians. The Situationists, a lot of the Lat Am Natlib movements 
and even the Zapatistas have a direct line to Heidegger.

And that strage weed, the left-wing postmodernist, more common in France and 
LatAm than in the USA, are also pretty Heideggerian.

Myself, I am a reader of Heidegger, from my existentialist period (didn't we 
all have one?). And while I will agree he has nothing to do with marxist 
revolutionism, it has indeed influenced the left much more than the right.
