C.L.R. James saw the future of civilizations

I started reading ‘World Revolution 1917-1936’, then came upon this meaningful paragraph – that speaks to the current global situation:

“The present crisis in world affairs, the growth of Fascism, the Spanish revolution, the inevitable revolution in France, the role of Russia yesterday, to-day, and to-morrow, the constant ebb and flow of political parties and movements all over the world, these things must be seen, can only be understood at all, as part of the international revolutionary movement against Capitalism which entered a decisive stage in 1917….”- C.L.R. James, January 17, 1937

It’s 2017 – a hundred years later – is civilization in a global movement against Capitalism?
