No it's not a fantasy that failed. USSR (State Capitalism) didn't work because Capitalism, in it's liberal version was in an expansion phase. You cannot force history. Karl Kautsky, who was Engels pupil, and compiled theories on surplus value from Marx, heavily criticized Lenin because he wanted to have communism in an archaic (1917 russia) country.
Regarding, again, historical materialism, Capitalism can only happen when it reach it's internal contradictions. Which it has, by the way. For those who don't believe it, and say, i am rambling, reminder that without fictitious credit (money printing), we would most likely be in a dramatic, impossible to solve, crisis. Fictitious credit only delayed it, but we are entering an interesting phase were people will not want fictitious credit anymore, but real asset instead, so basically a phase were fictitious credit crumble. It might not be obvious at all, but we might have entered Capitalism final crisis.

Nothing is needed to be spread. People will hang on desperately to political economy.

But in our pursuance of peace, we've let the powerful walk on us and take over our countries.

Marx actually barely mentions it, beyond really superficial and vague aphorisms like "from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs" or "man can hunt in the morning, raise cattle in the evening, philosophize in the evening" etc.
You can see that Marx was really scared of actually predicting what it'd look like, because he'd realize just how juvenile and unreachable this world would really be, and how he never really managed to exorcize the ghost of utopianism.

I believe Engels even said the positive content of communism as a goal doesn't exist, so you can only speak about it like negative theology.

Huterrites are not communist because they are small scale religious communes/ ethnostates. They are small scale religious communes/ethnostates, because they are communists.

Means of production can also be owned by a single individual, but then it isn't a Capitalist production, but more handcraft. Marx favored handcraftmen, owning their own means of production. But Capitalism made them obsolete throught primitive accumulation.

Everything in Marx is defined in terms of social relations. People are used to thinking about e.g., ownership as a person-object relation when in reality it is a person-person relation.

People don't really understand production this way anymore and that's all that was being implied. Production can come from a single individual.

They can exclusively develop their own apps, not owned by anyone else other than themselves. Complex organizations are no longer necessary for all kinds of production.

As I said, those people are not leftists. Leftism is a materialist ideology that rejects capitalism and private property. Radical liberalism is the opposite. The strategy of the ruling class is to elevate radlibs and deplatform the politically incorrect, thereby magnifying cultural antagonism within the proletariat. The only reason to do it that way instead of the reverse is that the majority of the proletariat are socially moderate-to-conservative with limited sympathy for 'woke' causes.

In Romania and surely other commie nations the intelligence guys were picked from among the smartest, they usually measured that by school grades - if your average GPA was in the top and you also knew at least two foreign languages you were selected.

Now the same guys after communism fell told us how things work - let's take Comecon - the principle was of mutual aid and is what allowed this superstate structure early on to work and grow.. reality is that every single representative there was sent with the specific purpose of generating revenues for his country and deceive as much as possible, example import stuff from Germans and sell it to Ukraine lying that's from own production, the end game was to obtain a foreign currency surplus.. every single country did this and Marxist dogma and ideology mattered little among them.
