Such constraints thwart egalitarian ideals of a world in which all people have equal access to the social and material means necessary to live a flourishing life. The capitalist road to communism: are we there yet? 415 Almaz Zelleke Twenty-five years after the publication of Van Parijs and van der Veen’s provocative “Capitalist Road to Communism,” the global economy has achieved the abundance necessary for communism. The means and relations 34 Arguing about justice of production have evolved in a way that makes the elimination of the division of labor, private property, and class divisions—conditions critical to Marx’s vision of communism—possible.
The contrast is to internal resources. Van Parijs, extending Bruce Ackerman’s idea, adopts the criterion of undominated diversity, which sanctions individual ownership of a wide variety of talents, skills, emotional traits (like ambition and persistence), and accomplishments. One’s internal endowments meet the criterion of undominated diversity if at least one other person considers them superior to her own (RFA: 73). At first glance, marriages seem nothing at all like the objects created by nature or technology.
In Real Freedom for All (hereafter RFA), Philippe Van Parijs advocates a tax on wages. Jobs, he contends, constitute a scarce resource that -- like inherited wealth -- should be taxed in order to fund the highest possible basic income. The same logic, it would seem, could justify taxing other scarce goods -- like marriage partners. Van Parijs considers the analogy and concludes that husbands might indeed be sufficiently scarce to warrant taxation. But Van Parijs stops short of proposing a tax on husbands.
