Humanity could not decide locally how many steel plants to build, what gauge to use for railroad tracks, how to fight global warming, and so on. To have those things that must be decided supralocally decided solely locally would lead either to chaos and nonfunctionality, or to the antidemocratic imposition of the decisions of some locals onto other locals, thus violating the goal of making humans self-governing and the subjects of their own history. “State interference in social relations becomes, in one domain after another, superfluous, and then dies out by itself; the government of persons is replaced by the administration of things, and by the conduct of processes of production” (Engels 1987[1878], 268; 1989[1880], 321).

Given the human drive for individual and species development and the barriers to such development presented by capitalism, Marx and Engels can project general characteristics of these better future societies as the negations of those limitations.

The single densest presentation of their ideas on these future better societies is found in The Critique of the Gotha Programme.
