Swedish pirates have wind in their sails for EU vote


www.google.com

STOCKHOLM (AFP) — A Swedish party which wants an Internet filesharing free-for-all, the Pirate Party, could become one of the surprise new entrants to the European parliament this week.

The party, which also wants to beef up Internet privacy, was founded in January 2006 and quickly attracted members angered by controversial laws adopted in the Scandinavian country that criminalised filesharing and authorised monitoring of emails.
[...]
Many members say they joined not only because they are die-hard fans of the Internet and filesharing, but because they fear a "Big Brother" society.

Some people with insight! Very well, stand up for your freedom and build some new, young and better parties. That's exactly the thing to do.

Me, personally, i may vote for the pirate party. Not that i love the idea of unrestricted file sharing, but i definitely want some guys who kick the security-mongers azzes


Note how the article ridicules the pary: "they fear a 'Big Brother' society"
No, they don't fear, they legitimately critizise the government for their laws, that restrict the peoples freedom of action.

maybe they should step up to the plate and focus on wider issues such as ending the EU state, stopping mass immigration, mulitculturalism, welfare dependence, state interference/control etc

Yeah, with regards to file sharing I agree, but it's like trying to put out a match in your garden when a house is on fire across the street

Yes, maybe, but maybe not everyone can save the world. Some people do what they like And, who knows, maybe they stand up against internet censor and that is significant
