Human dignity is inviolable. Everyone has the right to life, freedom of thought, personal autonomy and the ability to participate in society. We are all entitled to equality before the law, and we all have a fundamental right to privacy.
Technological advancements are currently used to control, abuse, and divide us. Instead, we want to use them to build community, spread knowledge, enable innovation and improve quality of life.
Piratpartiet envisions a society where knowledge is part of the commons, without artificial impediments like copyright and patent. A society where we have equal freedom to learn, act, cooperate and create. Piratpartiet fights for a liberated internet free from surveillance, censorship, and monopolization.
A high quality digital infrastructure, along with an internet on which people can communicate freely, creates an enormous potential for economic, societal, and cultural progress. The way that the digital infrastructure is designed and constructed matters. It determines whether or not we can secure vital functions in society, and whether or not you are allowed to use your voice to fight for what you believe in.
Pirate policy is anti-monopolistic. We fight for distribution of power to ensure that people have the freedom to be their authentic selves, and the ability to make informed decisions in their own lives. In today’s information society, knowledge and information are the source of power. It is thus vital that people are not subject to surveillance, neither by big corporations nor by the state, and that we impose high standards of transparency on those in power.
A lack of political transparency and tools necessary to enforce accountability creates a breeding ground for corruption and wasteful spending of government funds. This, in turn, erodes our trust in democracy and public institutions. Piratpartiet combats corruption and wastefulness with transparency, increased participation, and reforms that hold those in power accountable.
Piratpartiet will only cooperate with parties that are prepared to tackle the issues of corruption and misuse of tax money, as well as update our democracy for the 2020’s.
Here we present the political issues that Piratpartiet will focus on in the 2022 general election:
1. Modern democracy
2. Responsible digitalization
3. Dynamic labour market
4. Education in the information age
5. Right to privacy
6. Living culture
7. Dignified Healthcare
8. Humane drug policy
