(p.3) Chapter 1 Capitalism, Socialism, and Freedom
Real Freedom for All

Philippe Van Parijs

Oxford University Press

Freedom is not to be contrasted with justice: a just society is a free society. But a free society is one that provides as much real—not just formal—freedom as possible to all, and not just to a few. There is no a priori reason why either pure capitalism or pure socialism should be optimal according to this conception.
