Metapolitics refers to various forms of non-political activities which work towards spreading certain ideas and values within a culture(s) which make up a "world-view" (Weltanschauung).
Metapolitical activity is related to but excludes direct political activity (party politics, electoral events, political campaigning, etc.); it aims to influence politics and politicians as an end result, but not by working through politics.
Metapolitics is associated primarily with intellectual and philosophical activity that works to support an ideology or world-view, but also involves spreading ideas and values through other means, including speeches, TV shows, journalism, popular myths, work programs, and various forms of propaganda.
Metapolitics also argues that one of the main tasks of contemporary thought is to abolish the idea that politics is merely an object for philosophical reflection.
