Communism is stateless, so this isn't technically true, but it's been retconned in thanks to state-capitalism's deliberate perversion of communism to suit their hunger for power/greed or irrational fear of life without police and politicians.

Communism is both money-less and state-less. You're thinking of socialism - which is the transition to communism and meant to be temporary.

Socialism isn't "transitional," it's simply a state (as in a condition or circumstance, not a nation state) where workers own the means of production (and writ greater, is often meant to mean any society in which all of its resources and productive outputs are used for the greater collective good, this being the assumed logical outcome of non-privatized resources).

*Socialist state.

Marxists see the socialist state as a transition to communism.
