(Italiano) Immanuel Wallerstein su sinistra e destra globali

Johan Galtung | Centro Studi Sereno Regis –TRANSCEND Media Service

In questo momento Wallerstein vede il capitalismo in crisi senza rimedio--di cui non sono così sicuro--e anche l'egemonia americana in crisi senza rimedio--una visione che condivido--, come la caduta di un impero per il quale i locali le élite erano solite uccidere e governare; ora deve fare la maggior parte degli omicidi da solo.
