Consider the following:
Alienation has individual and social dimensions.
Individual alienation denotes estrangement from the self in its creative potentialities.
Social alienation denotes estrangement from other people.
The two are not necessarily linked: individual creativity can co-exist with social alienation
(example: cultural production in big cities as New York, London, Los Angeles).
Hence, Marx is wrong to assume that the end of alienation requires the end of capitalism.
