I find this piece about Bakunin's stance against Marxist communism to be helpful.

He said:

The most fatal combination that could possibly be formed, would be to unite socialism to absolutism

Which was a frightenly accurate prediction of every communist revolution that occured over the next 100 years.

The prediction by Engels that the seizing and centralising of property would be the state’s last official act [9] proved to be a sick joke on the workers of the Stalinist countries.
