Cytaty Immanuel Wallerstein

„Przede wszystkim, to nie zrewoltowani proletariusze obalą system, ale raczej sami kapitaliści, którzy nie będą chcieli dalszego istnienia kapitalizmu – już nie będą w stanie generować satysfakcjonujących zysków i w związku z tym zaczną poszukiwać alternatyw.“

— Immanuel Wallerstein

„The past can be told as it truly is, not was. For recounting the past is a social act of the present done by men of the present and affecting the social system of the present.“

„And in the present we are all irremediably the products of our background, our training, our personality and social role, and the structured pressures within which we operate.“

„In the sixteenth century, Europe was like a bucking bronco. The attempt of some groups to establish a world-economy based on a particular division of labor, to create national states in the core areas as politico-economic guarantors of this system, and to get the workers to pay not only the profits but the costs of maintaining the system was not easy. It was to Europe's credit that it was done, since without the thrust of the sixteenth century the modern world would not have been born and, for all its cruelties, it is better that it was born than that it had not been.
It is also to Europe's credit that it was not easy, and particularly that it was not easy because the people who paid the short-run costs screamed lustily at the unfairness of it all. The peasants and workers in Poland and England and Brazil and Mexico were all rambunctious in their various ways. As R. H. Tawney says of the agrarian disturbances of sixteenth-century England: 'Such movements are a proof of blood and sinew and of a high and gallant spirit... Happy the nation whose people has not forgotten how to rebel.'
The mark of the modern world is the imagination of its profiteers and the counter-assertiveness of the oppressed. Exploitation and the refusal to accept exploitation as either inevitable or just constitute the continuing antinomy of the modern era, joined together in a dialectic which has far from reached its climax in the twentieth century.“
