While America prepares to elect a corrupt, lawless criminal for president, to continue the course of Rotten Government we’ve suffered under for decades, Iceland may be about to choose a different path.
Iceland’s Pirate Party — an amalgamation of anarchists, libertarians, and hackers, who want to ban digital surveillance — is predicted to win the country’s national elections this Saturday.
This collection of free-thinkers have upturned the traditional Western political paradigm and hopes to use online public polls to shape governmental policy and end all Internet spying.
Although the Pirate Party formed just four years ago, its popularity has skyrocketed — most likely for unconventional tactics aligning loosely with libertarianism — the promotion of privacy rights and personal freedoms, and simultaneous shrinking of Big Government.
Sounds good to me.
Do you think Iceland is going to turn into Somalia? Because according to our leftist friends, the only alternative to massive, all-powerful, intrusive, Government is totally anarchy with no police, roads, or fire protection. There simply is no other possible system of Government.
I had already decided there would be an Icelandic character in my NaNoWriMo novel. Glad I made that call.
