This study draws clear lines between the ways that social systems are justified by their supporters, and the way the systems really are. In the process, Ankerly uncovers the principle of distributive justice that is basic to communistic societies. He also uncovers the underlying principle of capitalist as well as socialist societies, commutative or exchange justice. Partisans often resort to the sophism of comparing their own society's ideal type with the actual conditions prevailing in the opposing camp.
