Second, the absolute ruler needs to come to power and go about the single expert on all issues including the individual issues of people in general. The ruler would be in charge of influencing everybody to take the goals of communism and furthermore guarantee that no property or riches is exclusive. At last, the last stage would be the accomplishment of an idealistic state (in spite of the fact that this stage has never been accomplished) whereby renowned correspondence would be fulfilled and everybody would eagerly and joyfully share their riches and advantages with others in the public.

As marked out by Marx, in a perfect communist society, keeping money would be brought together, the assembly would control instruction and work.
