In a blockchain assets are locked under their appropriate private keys, so one node cannot spend another node's assets unless you have deliberately shared private keys. You can do this if you wish using dumpprivkey and importprivkey but be aware that it removes the fundamental security premise of the blockchain, which is decentralized control.
