Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's strange that you consider my previous post 'bluster' as there is almost entirely quotations from the same source as yours - Marx himself and marxists .org.

We (you and me - or me and Marx, if you like) may have different ideas about what spirituality is though. Marx was materialist, and any idea he might have had about the man's emancipation and 'wholeness', they are all subsumed to his view of what 'spiritual' is.

"This opposition to the ineffectiveness, as well as the illusions, of morality and ethics can be found throughout Marx's writings -- from his early essays and poetry, through The German Ideology to Capital. Needless to say, it is a criticism that he brings not simply against morality and ethics, but against all theories and social institutions"

Your own quotation seems to support my view that the target were morality and ethics in general, and not just those of the capitalist society. My diary too mentions the Marx's view of the idelogy in general as a distortion of reality.

But I don't have a lot of time either right now. I will get back to you later on the reasons I mentioned free speech as well as your citations.
