Anarchist communism[lower-alpha 1] is a political philosophy and anarchist school of thought that advocates communism. It calls for the abolition of private property but retention of personal property and collectively-owned items, goods, and services.[7] It supports social ownership of property[8][9] and the distribution of resources "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs".[10]

Anarchist communism was first formulated as such in the Italian section of the International Workingmen's Association.[11] The theoretical work of Peter Kropotkin took importance later as it expanded and developed pro-organizationalist and insurrectionary anti-organizationalist sections.[12] Examples of anarchist communist societies are the anarchist territories of the Makhnovshchina during the Russian Revolution,[13] and those of the Spanish Revolution, most notably revolutionary Catalonia.[14]
