El Partido Pirata es la mayor formación extraparlamentaria de Suecia. Su programa incluye las siguientes propuestas:
Protected integrity in an open society
In no time, the monitoring state has advanced its positions strongly in Sweden. This development threatens equality and safety before the law, and nothing indicates that it even adds to security. The Pirate Party believes this is the wrong way to go.
If the constitutional freedom of information is to be more than empty words on a paper, we much defend the right for protected private communication.
We have no problem with police monitoring and spying on suspected criminals. That is exactly what the police is suppose to be doing. But routinely monitoring ordinary citizens hoping for something suspicious to turn up is not only a gross violation of the privacy of honest people. It is also a waste of valuable police resources.
Private communication and file sharing
The current copyright legislation can not be combined with freedom of information and protected private communication. Since the fundamental principles of the open, democratic society is more important than conserving old business models within the business of entertainment at all costs, copyright has to fold.
But this is not negative. A reformed copyright legislation, expressing a balance between different interests in society instead of being an order form from the large media companies, has its own benefits. It is a possibility for Sweden and Europe, not a threat.
No other issues
We particularly does not concern ourselves with the division of wealth. We are not after dividing money between different groups in society. None of our propositions costs any money for the state, and several of them may potentially save money in the budget. Because of this, we can place ourselves outside of the struggle concerning the budget, with good faith, and leave it to the old parties.
Por desgracia, este partido sólo consiguió un 0,6% en las últimas elecciones suecas, celebradas en septiembre de 2006. De todas formas la plataforma no está nada mal, y viendo cómo se están poniendo las cosas, ¿por qué no?
