Communism, by a long shot. Fascism really emerged as a populist response to communism in countries where either the monarchy or democratic traditions weren't strong enough to resist communism on their own.

Constantine is right. Communism comes from the 19th century; Fascism comes from the 20th century.

If you think they are the same thing maybe reading the definitions in some dictionary will help you
Tut tut. Not able to debate then?

Why dont you give it some thought? Politics isn't a straight line with communism at the left and fascism at the right. It is best represented by a circle, hence the differences between Messrs Hitler and Stalin are quite hard to pinpoint.

Fascism was led by a cult of the nation who heard obscure class differences and favored or essentialisait, membership of a community based on blood ties, land and history; so it was worn by a nationalist ideology, that is to say, particularistic, that Stalinism could be as highlighting, to make his trials in the 1930s, the theme of Great Russia. Communism, he is clearly, definitely and absolutely, internationalist and therefore supported by a rigorously opposite ideology, universal in nature. Marx clearly indicated from the Manifesto, taking by his account that capitalism, by its global economic expansion, has himself brought cosmopolitanism and exceeded national borders; and it was the proletariat, this objective historical basis, a class that is not enclosed in its national interests, "Workers of the world, unite! "Proclaims concluding this text, he announced in his way the constitution of an international organization of the communist movement (there has never been an international fascist!) And singing militant communists is that of an International that" tomorrow will be the human genre

A shark is a fish, an elephant is an animal. There are some differences between them apparent to the biologists. But some would try to argue they are the same because they are both big and can kill a man. Likewise there are basic differences between the fascism and the communism (ot its practical implementation in the USSR). Do you still want to debate? Hitler and Stalin are bad, hence the communism and fascism are the same is like arguing that a shark and an elephant are the same species.
