Anarchism’s Promise for Anticapitalist Resistance
June 25, 2009
This piece by Cindy Milstein provides a nice overview of modern anarchist currents while identifying anarchism’s key placement as a idea that can really challenge capitalism and frame the debate as we head towards a postcapitalist future.
Nevertheless, this libertarian form of socialism may well have been ahead of its day in advocating a world of transnational and multidimensional identities, in struggling for a qualitative humanism based on cooperation and differentiation. It is only in the context of globalization that anarchism may finally be able to speak to the times and thus peoples’ hopes. Whether it can fulfill its own aspirations remains to be seen.
