Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I did not flag it in any possible way, what ever could possibly have made you think that ? :)
This must be some sort of contagious disease for some here on ET, putting words in people's mouths. I did not argue about the value of "objective moral truth", just like I have never supported Mme. Thatcher.

But while commenting on Marx's distorted view of society as a pure resultant of relations of productions, I suddenly remembered that modern progressives even today use to put anything on the "back" of the society, be it order, category, ethics, all seem to be a matter of societal constraints, of which the Man must of course be liberated.

This deserves a diary, because it is linked with ceebs' question above. I just don't feel like doing it, because I feel the ideological tide behind. And since I came to realise that ideology is builtin, and an affective rather than rational matter, one cannot argue with it - or would at least need a more neutral ground.
