According to the author, the revulsion against violence could spell the movement's demise but could also fortify the resolve of civil antiglobalism. He details on the dictum there is no alternative which is the membership of all major schools of globalism. In addition, He asserts that there is no contradiction between civil antiglobalism and certain mode of nationalism.
