mέta is here! (DiEM25’s Centre for Postcapitalist Civilisation) — watch the digital launch

Following the Crash of 2008, Capitalism has begun morphing into a form of Technofeudalism – a transformation that the pandemic accelerated and reinforced.

We are, thus, already living in postcapitalist times. Dystopian times. Times that bear no resemblance to those we dreamed of as Socialists, as Democrats, as children of the Enlightenment.

Can we overturn Technofeudalism? Can our postcapitalist times escape the spiral of inhuman exploitation of humans and climate catastrophe?

Through Research & Art, Argument & Poem, mέta, our Centre for Postcapitalist Civilisation is working for a rupture from our grim present –  a feat that presupposes a capacity to perceive and imagine the world anew.

On Thursday May 13, 2021, mέta was launched digitally in the midst of the pandemic. You can watch the video below. It was just the beginning. The complete program (research, educational, cultural, musical and artistic) will be announced soon. Onwards!
