Pirate policy from A to Z
Administrative policy is about the design of the administrative structures that will transform decided policy into reality.
Our culture is increasingly becoming digital. Our possibilities to create, share and develop art could be endless.
Sweden needs defense against external threats, but that requires not only aircraft and cannons, but also a much better cyber defense than we have today.
Democracy's existing tools need to be strengthened and supplemented. In order to ensure that the decisions that are made are representative of the people, it requires a policy that aims to strengthen community involvement.
Sweden's drug policy needs to be humanized. The zero tolerance towards drugs has given us one of the highest drug-related death rates in the Western world.

The EU's purpose should be to make it easy to make contacts and spread knowledge and ideas within Europe and with the rest of the world.
We want equal care - regardless of whether you live in the city or in the countryside - and a diversity of different care providers. Healthcare must be evidence-based and systems improved to introduce new knowledge and new technology into healthcare.

Technological development is advancing rapidly. It creates enormous opportunities but forces us to think along different lines than those of the 18th and 20th centuries.
Law & order
Equality before the law is one of the foundations of democracy. At the same time, it is important that police officers and prosecutors are scrutinized so that abuse is avoided and those who do are punished.
Sweden does not have the opportunity to help all refugees in the world, therefore we have to prioritize who we should help.
The pirate party fights for a free internet, accessible to everyone. Only then can the internet be a force for freedom and democracy, giving everyone the opportunity to make their voice heard.
