: Barry has made it very clear that he does not believe in supra-class morality (i.e. moral absolutes). That makes his morality quite different from your own. Check out Trotsky's "Their Morals and Ours" (1938).
I believe that NO ONE can be a socialist without believing in supra-class morality, WHETHER THEY KNOW IT OR NOT. I think I have discerned enough of a sense of supra-class morality in Barry's posts, although he may not see this the same way, it meets my definition of supra-class morality. If someone didn't believe in supra-class morality, they wouldn't support socialism; they'd support a mere reversal of capitalism, with themselves as the new capitalists.
