    You would have to be more specific. There is quite a bit of variance in the implementation of such systems. I'd pick fascist Spain over Khemer Rogue any day of the week. I'd also pick Cuba over Nazi Germany.

    The Salo Republic according to Pasolini had a sexy start but a crappy and bloody ending.

    I would rather have the opposite in real life, so I have picked the communists

    If I had to have one, I'd go with Fascism, i think it would be easier to alter in short order than Communism.

    Neither is a prize though.

    A better question would be I think, a choice between Absolute Monarchy ("I am the State,") and Communism ("from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs,") the two being further apart than Fascism and Communism.

    You may as well ask this : Death by poison or by a bullet ?
    Neither, of course, would be the response from most sane men..
    Repression is the true problem. Communism without the force of repression is not necessarily bad, but not good either, and probably impossible.
    Facism is bad, no matter how one looks at it.

    Fascist, by all means. Unless they're "National Socialists" (and even that might not fool people for long), they won't be able to delude the rank-and-file through pretensions of socialism because of their elitist hierarchy. That will inspire violent insurrection, at which point their leaders can endure the same fate as Il Duce.

    You have to be very ignorant to believe there's any substantive difference between the two.

    In Fascist states at the very least people can make money.

    In communist states influence isn't measured in money so much, but the oligarchy can be just as bad as in a fascist state or even worse.

    A fascist regime would fall faster than a communist regime, so I'll have to go with fascist.
