Communism and Fascism

The complete collapse of the belief in the attainability of freedom and equality through Marxism, has forced Russia to travel the same road toward a totalitarian, purely negative, non-economic society of unfreedom and inequality which Germany has been following.  Not that communism and fascism are essentially the same.  Fascism is the stage reached after communism has proved an illusion, and it has proved as much an illusion in Stalinist Russia as in pre-Hitler Germany
Peter Drucker (1939, The End of Economic Man: A Study of the New Totalitarianism)
