All I want for Christmas is Postcapitalism: mέta, a think tank for DiEM25 — DiEM TV Christmas Special

mέta, our Centre for Postcapitalist Civilisation (https://metacpc.org/en/), was officially launched in May 2020 as the Athens-based think tank supporting the work of DiEM25, MERA25 and the Progressive International.

Said otherwise: “We live in postcapitalist times. They may turn out dystopic, utopic or anything in between. Through art and research, argument and poetry, mέta works to break with a dystopic present to imagine the world anew – to grasp our present historical moment so as to help radical progressive movements find a path from the emergent dismal postcapitalism to one worth fighting, and living, for.”

In this Christmas special with DiEM TV, mέta’s academic director Sotiris Mitralexis presents what we’ve done so far and how we are planning to take the discussion further in the immediate future – and at a time when…mέta is not the only ‘meta’ in the neighbourhood, following the announcement of Mark Zuckerberg’s dystopic nightmare of a vision.
