what is the meaning of the following sentence?
" Socialism hoped for the eventual abolition of the state that only things, and not people would be administrated."

    It feels like there's a missing 'and'. Socialism hoped for the eventual abolition of the state, and that only things, and not people would be administrated.

    sorry you are right, something was missing:
    "Socialism hoped for the eventual abolition of the state so that only things, and not people would be administrated."
