Saturday 4 April , by Immanuel Wallerstein. The antisystemic movements now find themselves in the midst of a fierce struggle about the future. Let me start by reviewing very briefly my premises, about which I have written much. I do this in order to analyze the role and dilemmas of the antisystemic movements in this struggle, what I now call the Global Left. The modern world-system is a capitalist world-economy functioning within the framework of an interstate system. This system has been in existence for some years.

Antisystemic movements ASMs may be defined as political groupings that oppose and resist the prevailing productive forces and relations in a given historical era. Thus, antisystemic movements can be said to have existed throughout human history.
Antisystemic movements achieved profound economic and political success in the post period in overthrowing structures of formal colonialism in the global political economy and establishing the acceptance of social democratic norms of limited wealth redistribution and the state provision of social welfare in rich, developed states. However, they simultaneously failed to achieve their principal objective of transforming the unequal relations of exchange among the different zones of the global political economy.

New Revolts Against the System
Basing itself on an analysis of resistance movements since the emergence of capitalism, it shows that while some early forms were successful in their own terms, ultimately they did not impede the consolidation of the modern capitalist world-system. The authors argue that although capitalism generated resistance right from the beginning as it displaced populations, despoiled resources and established global exploitation, until about the capitalist world-system could crush or outflank an opposition which was dispersed, localized and lacking in organization and continuity. From the mid-nineteenth century down to recent times, more adequately organized social and national movements set some limits on capital accumulation, but generally remained confined in their effectiveness to the terrain of the nation-state. These new movements have a different ethnic and gender composition and different ways of organizing, while their key inspirations show an increasing ability to cross national boundaries. The authors suggest that the new assertiveness of the south, the development of class struggle in the east and the emergence of rainbow coalitions in different world zones might hold out the promise of a future socialist world-system.
