The ends of Metapolitefsi

by giangeo

‘Metapolitefsi’ has been one of the most frequently used terms in the Greek political vocabulary: a word marking the democratic transition of the mid-seventies, wich very quickly became a concept describing the political arrangement of the past 38 years. Metapolitefsi has also been a somewhat ‘zombified’ concept: its ‘death’ is being pronounced almost every five years from the eighties onwards. Today it seems that its end has finally occurred. But there is much more at stake. The Greek people are voting for the future of Europe, and the end of the greek ‘Metapolitefsi’ can bring into life a new era in European politics, the era of a European People demanding to put an end to the rule of the markets.
