Question for non-socialists: what is socialism according to you?

What's the difference between communism (as you describe here) and anarchism? Are communism and anarchism the same thing to you, or is there a difference?

I consider fascism as a version of socialism; do you think socialism and fascism are distinct from each other?
Anarchism is simply the absence of the state. True communism is anarcho communism.

Theoretically socialism and fascism are different though in practice they end up merging. Some may say that fascism has its roots in a strong state focusing on nationalism where as communism simply wishes to spread though i believe that may be from the likes of the Fabian society or other socialist schools of thought that wished to distance itself from the nazis after WWII demonizing them but still showing support for controlled economies.
