Crucial to van Parijs’ justification of the ambition-sensitivity of compensatory payments is the assumption that people are responsible for their own preferences which they can shape according to their will (van Parijs 1995, p. 71). This implies that any form of welfare egalitarianism is rejected on this ground.
