So yeah, Marx's dream means the destruction of about 2000 years of cultural and technological advancement, which is hardly desirable.
Expand on what you mean by getting input from an outside source means there is social inequality in that society please.

By no economy I'm referring to no need for money. Food, clothing, shelter can all be gathered and amassed without spending a dime(and no not stealing either). Having no money may be poverty in a capitalist eye but according to Marx communism would spread around the globe meaning there would be no capitalism to view the society in poverty. So a world of humans sustaining their communities without using money because there no longer is any need for money is still poverty (they would have a means of support within their own system)?
