You are a pirate!

WHY?

We know it can be creepy, but it is ...
Because you want freedom and society does not allow you to have it.
True freedom requires setting your mind free.
Free of the stress put on us to keep us under control
Freedom to set up our crews together in the way we want
The freedom to be happy

Your treasure is democracy 2.0

By horizontal structures and powers that alternate, decisions can reflect a society pirates can at least accept
The real meaning of democracy is sovereignty of the people, not particracy

It is not because we have a parliament that we have democracy. Through the compromises of party politics it is the leaders of the parties that decide. Pirates want a more direct influence on policy.

  • alternating power
  • Direct Governance
  • co-creation of ideas
  • No stress

Give better Politics hold on money

The central banks and the IMF still lack a democratic supervision, while inequality continues to increase putting people in poverty throughout the world. We should make people aware of how the system works if we want the necessary changes to happen.
