John Carter's asset-based tax system is reminiscent of Thomas Paine's
Agrarian Justice. In several respects, Marx took a step back from Paine
whose reform proposal was both more radical than Marx's communism and more
concretely outlined.

"All accumulation, therefore, of personal property, beyond what a man's own
hands produce, is derived to him by living in society; and he owes, on every
principle of justice, of gratitude, and of civilisation, a part of that
accumulation back again to society from whence the whole came."
