: I agree UNCONDITIONALLY with all of them---except I personally would soften the morality section a bit---as I recall Engels approving of permanent love matches providing both lovers were economically independent. (Obviously day care centers, laundries, dining halls, etc. should be ubiquitous...)

It is so refreshing to see a genuine revolutionary marxist! I would argue further on the 'morality' matter though comrade - for there is truly no such thing as economically independant persons in a true socialism - we are all part of the totality of society - all interdependant. Such is the basis for this imperative.

: I think you are hip to the fact that in this debate room almost all self-advertised 'socialists' are nothing more than liberals who dislike the property relations of capital yet (for a variety of reasons) wish to retain some arbitrary hierarchy as they see fit. This sentimentality for the old, corrupt ways, as I see it, could only lead to bureaucratic privilege in the socialist future.

It would - and I fear the liberals - once counted as allies - are just looking for privilege on their terms! indeed imagine such a possibility! Traitors to the egalitarian ideal claiming to be likeminded.

have you suspected such?
