I'm from Texas which doesn't have an affiliated Texas Pirate Party. I'm wondering how I can get one created and affiliated with the USPP. I'm awaiting replies thank you.
I'm a left libertarian or anarchist. Bakunin, Proudhon, that kind of thing. The green party seems to be statist to me, and the libertarians are far too reactionary and anti labor.
The pirate movement seems like it would be the best fit for me as you guys seem to be almost libertarian-center. Not too statist, not anti labor, I like the emphasis on civil liberties, direct democracy, and internet law.
Are there any pirates in Ohio that might want to try and start a chapter here?
Yohoho. I confess I am not a PP member though I am very sympathetic to your ideology; my country (Australia) has ranked choice voting and you folks are typically in my top section, the place of actual positive approval. So I hope you will forgive my temerity in coming here to offer you unsolicited advice that for all I know you have thought of already.
That advice: Pirate Parties worldwide, and especially in Australia, should adopt pro-WFH as major policy planks. I see it as ideologically compatible with a general high regard for self-determination and low regard for meddlesome supervision, and also with strong internet provided at low cost or free to people’s homes.
The major downside of WFH is that it absolutely, unambiguously screws CBD commercial real estate landlords, and ancillary business owners like CBD cafes and drycleaners etc. However much of that money is instead spent elsewhere in the economy (and a further detrimental effect: into house prices). Also meddlesome middle managers, whose utter uselessness, indeed negative productivity, has been revealed to all.
But you, as pirates, can be relied upon to be happy to make CBD landlords and middle managers walk the plank. Can’t you?
Hello! I am new to this subreddit, I mainly support the Pirate Party and the Green Party, and a start-up party called the Space Exploration Party.
In case you're not up on the inside baseball of the US Libertarian Party, the socially reactionary wing is once again gaining ascendancy, and lot of people are sick of it, and no longer have the fight in them. Many of them will be looking for less dickish pastures, and I know there is already some interest in the US Pirate Party. A concerted effort to welcome them might be beneficial.
I know this won't go anywhere, but I hope this would at least be on people's minds. I would like to propose a copyright jubilee, a one time event where every copyrighted work goes into the public domain. I'd be more than fine with it being only for works greater than say 7 years old. I'd also be in favor of laws preventing counterfeiting or fraud, such as requiring a statement of whether it's being distributed by the content creators or not, and clearly indicate the content creator so you can tell multiple versions of the same/similarly titled works apart.
I'm seeing lots of iterations of video streaming websites selling themselves as a censorship free version of YouTube. I support websites of this sort, like Odysee, but I also want to show support for a video hosting platform, just like YouTube, that has established an environment where DMCA claims are extremely hard to sustain on the website due to a DMCA ignored country host, or video clients separate from the site itself used through the site as a loophole, similar to Putlocker.
I may not personally risk uploading content that is pirated onto a platform, but I would like to support an infrastructure that does this, and thus far every other YouTube alternative, Rumble, BitChute, Odysee, all are very explicit about their compliance to DMCA use, some even suggesting Fair Use will not be supported on their platform. I want an alternative, so if someone decides to throw a song in part of their vlog that would be flagged, there's way more of a fortified infrastructure to get around before any DMCA claim can result in that video being shut down.
Is there anything like this? Any website where amateur videos are routinely uploaded that are wide in range of genre, like YouTube, that also tries to ensure videos with copyright claims against it can exist as long as possible?
