Such ideas have nevertheless been present in the periphery of the parliamentary system, and especially in the social movements that have helped to shape society. Any new social or extra-parliamentary movement is potentially anarchist. This is also where anarchism traditionally comes from; not from the established political system, but from the marginal zone, from the unintegrated currents such as the early labor movement, the Norwegian movement and the peasant friend movement. In recent times, the same applies to the counterculture movement in the 70s, the anti-EU movement, the environment and peace movement, various solidarity movements and Attac.
