Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
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.

From which Man can be liberated. Can and must are not - quite - the same thing; the former is a matter of fact, while the latter is a matter of policy.
