Is a classless society a society without or with no economic classes impossible in a society with money or even without what about now a days is this unlikely ? Can the upper class and the lower class ever be equal in terms on wealth and income and economics ? Did the Soviet Union and other Marxist Nations such as Cuba still have Rich or Wealthy People a Upper Class ?

II -- PROLETARIANS AND COMMUNISTS

When, in the course of development, class distinctions have disappeared, and all production has been concentrated in the hands of a vast association of the whole nation, the public power will lose its political character. Political power, properly so called, is merely the organized power of one class for oppressing another. If the proletariat during its contest with the bourgeoisie is compelled, by the force of circumstances, to organize itself as a class; if, by means of a revolution, it makes itself the ruling class, and, as such, sweeps away by force the old conditions of production, then it will, along with these conditions, have swept away the conditions for the existence of class antagonisms and of classes generally, and will thereby have abolished its own supremacy as a class.
