It is not a form of society we build after the revolution. It is not a tactic, a strategic perspective, an organization, or a plan. Communization describes a set of measures that we must take in the course of the class struggle if there is to be a revolution at all.
Communization abolishes the capitalist mode of production, including wage-labor, exchange, the value form, the state, the division of labor and private property. That the revolution must take this form is a necessary feature of class struggle today. Our cycle of struggles can have no other horizon, since the unfolding contradictions of capitalism annihilated the conditions which other forms of revolution required. It is no longer possible to imagine a situation in which social divisions are dissolved after the revolution.

I read Toscano as saying that TC et al. He wants to question this, not just assume these are the right questions. He gives reasons why he thinks some of these questions are still important, not that I agree with him, I just disagree with your summary of him. Toscano, as I see his reading, does not address this at all. His response remains entirely at the political level, and is thus just a new Post-Lenin Leninism.
I agree on the whole. My complaint with Toscano remains that he does nothing to justify his own claim that these questions persist and remain valid. He asserts what he needs to develop and show. In that he is no better and maybe worse than TC.
