Tariffs implicated on free trade constitute socialism to a high degree.

Protective tariffs seems more like a Fascist idea than a Communist idea. That's just my opinion, though.

Fascism has elements of communism though. None the less, tariffs abolishment is something I actually support, even thous its very anarchous.

Yes that is true that tariffs is technically socialism, but you really cannot have free trade without some kind of regulation due to corruption in other countries and human rights violations.

I agree that tariffs should be applied as a political penalty, but its believed that abolishing the tariff will produce more revenue.
