This is a logical fallacy. Ziq doesn't need to be a professor to make a reasoned argument or to make and support a claim. He doesn't need to justify by any other method than logically.

Saying communism as a response to this thread about fascism is a rather blatant tell. It tells us your level of understanding of communism and that in this particular circumstance the best you could be referring to is any one of the supposed "communist experiments" as opposed to the philosophy itself. It doesn't really matter which one of the "experiments" the USSR was just the most likely.

Things have definitions for a reason. Why none of these experiments qualified as communist is simple. They did not meet the very definitions laid out in the philosophy. Having said that, on point to this thread, in Marxist philosophies, statelessness doesn't come until the end and it is but one of many basic ideas/tenants that would need to be checked against for something to qualify.

Anarchism demands both the maximization of liberty and socialism in equal measure as well as anti-hierarchy. The Anarchist perspective is that without these, no communism will ever exist or succeed nor will any other concept of society philosophical or political.
