Walter D. Mignolo analiza la \"l\u00F3gica colonial\" que ha llevado a quinientos a\u00F1os de imperialismo occidental, desde el colonialismo a trav\u00E9s del neoliberalismo, y que describe la resistencia, desde el siglo XVI en adelante, a la proyecci\u00F3n y violenta forzando de los ideales europeos modernos en el mundo no europeo. Mignolo afirma que a principios del siglo XXI, un orden mundial polic\u00E9ntrico irreversible se ha afianzado. La modernidad europea-americana ya no se da por sentado como un modelo global. La creaci\u00F3n de m\u00FAltiples futuros, globales no dominadas por Occidente est\u00E1 en marcha, era visible en el desplazamiento del movimiento zapatista de la separaci\u00F3n entre la teor\u00EDa y la pr\u00E1ctica, y se puede ver en las elecciones y el gobierno de Evo Morales en Bolivia.
