Communism is not a set of measures to be put into practice after the seizure of power […]. All past movements were able to bring society to a standstill and waited for something to come out of this universal stoppage. Communisation, on the contrary, will circulate goods without money […] it will tend to break all separations. – Gilles Dauve and Francois Martin, The Eclipse and Re- Emergence of the Communist Movement.

The example of the German, and above all, of the Russian revolutions, shows that the proletariat was fully capable of destroying a social order which presented an obstacle to the development of the productive forces, and thus to the development of capital, but that at the moment that it became a matter of establishing a different community, it remained a prisoner of the logic of the rationality of the development of those productive forces, and confined itself within the problem of managing them.

– Jacques Camatte, ‘Proletariat and Revolution’, Invariance Series II no. 6, 1975.
