Some of the current authorities in political theory have been indirectly in support of Marxist ideas. For example John Bordley Rawls. he was an American philosopher, born in 1921 and died in 2002. He was regarded as a leading scholar in the fields of political philosophy and morals. His greatest publication was a theory of justice, published in 1971.
In this book he argues that “the most reasonable principles of justice are those everyone would accept and agree to from a fair position (Rawls, 1971). He is mostly known for his theory of justice of fairness. This theory has been widely borrowed by economists, sociologists as well as other scholars in different fields. Drawing ideas from the original position and the veil of ignorance Rawls tries to demonstrate how distributive justice can be arrived at. This theory develops certain principles of justice that govern a modern social order. This theory provides a framework that explains the importance of equal opportunity that benefits the more and less advantaged members of the society. This was what Marx was referring to in seeking a communist society
