Explanation about how to vote

After reading the following links

and having decided internally in your pirate party what to vote, find in each scheduled voting down this page a link where to cast your pirate party's vote; remember also that only pirate parties representatives -enlisted in this section of Pirate Manifesto's main page- are allowed to cast votes for each pirate party.

Options for each voting

At least, each voting will have two options:

  • Option One: the original wording of one or several specific paragraphs.
  • Option Two: the wording proposed in one amendment.

This applies for non merged amendments. If we talk about an Amendment which results from merging others, the voting will have these other options:

  • Option One: the original wording of one or several specific paragraphs.
  • As many additional options as amendments have been merged in the Amendment to be voted.

Obviously, it is strongly recommended to read all the proposed options and place them within the context of the articles where the paragraphs to be amended belong, to be able to form oneself an opinion before casting a vote for any of the proposed votings.

SCHEDULED VOTINGS

First Voting

Amendment to be voted

Second Amendment

Voting Options

OPTION ONE

The term intellectual property is most often used to mislead people, allowing the extention of authors rights; authors rights are rights, they are not property, and should not be treated as such, to be handed across generations. In no other field is a persons work still providing income to their descendants. Further, since it is not, and has never been, property, the notion of theft is in this context, utterly meaningless.

OPTION TWO

The term "intellectual property" is most often used to mislead people, allowing the extention of author's rights. In no other field is a person's work still providing income to their descendants. Further, since it is not by its nature comparable to property on material goods, the notion of theft is in this context, utterly meaningless.

Second Voting

Amendment to be voted

Fourth Amendment

Voting Options

OPTION ONE

Usage of expressions like intellectual property has to cease because of being harmful and misleading since they confuse different aspects of laws on immaterial goods with the aim to confuse it with the property a person can have on material goods.

OPTION TWO

Usage of expressions like "intellectual property" has to cease because of being harmful and misleading since they confuse different aspects of laws on immaterial goods with the aim to confuse it with the property a person can have on material goods.

Third Voting

Amendment to be voted

Fifth Amendment

Voting Options

OPTION ONE

Advances in technology has enabled the whole world to exercise our rights and embrace our liberties in ways previously unimagined. It has allowed increased involvement in democracy, and helped to remove the barriers between people all around the world; however, unwisefully used, they could become a tool of division, discrimination and lessening of rights and liberties. To avoid this and take the most advantage from all that an Information Society can offer, there are three goals to be fulfilled.

Fourth Voting

Amendment to be voted

Seventh Amendment

Voting Options

OPTION ONE

Balance between author's rights and citizens' rights on culture is necessary. Today, the balance is biased, but not towards authors, but towards publishers who have alienated author's rights, and the bias grows without control and with the connivence of authorities; balance has to be reinstated, not only to restore citizens their rights regarding culture, but to also restore authors theirs preventing them to be alienated anymore.

OPTION TWO

Balance between the public's interest in promoting culture and the public's right to use published cultural works is necessary. Today, the balance is biased, but not towards authors, but towards publishers who have alienated author's rights, and the bias grows without control and with the connivence of authorities; balance has to be reinstated, not only to restore citizens their rights regarding culture, but to also restore authors theirs preventing them to be alienated anymore.

OPTION THREE

Balance between author's rights and the rest of human rights is necessary. Today, the balance is biased, but not towards authors, but towards publishers who have alienated author's rights, and the bias grows without control and with the connivence of authorities; balance has to be reinstated, not only to restore all citizens their rights as a whole, but to also restore authors theirs preventing them to be alienated anymore.

Fifth Voting

Amendment to be voted

Nineth Amendment

Voting Options

OPTION ONE

The stated purpose of democracy is that the government represents the people. When a government does not represent the people, but a certain subclass, that is not democracy, that is aristocracy. When a government does not listen to facts, but listens to beliefs, that is not democracy, that is theocracy. When a government does not listen to the people, or to the rule of law, that is not democracy, that is dictatorship. We believe that democracy is the ideal, and it is to this end that we do aspire and work.

OPTION TWO

The stated purpose of democracy is that the government represents the people. When a government does not represent the people, but a certain subclass, that is not democracy, that is aristocracy. When a government does not listen to facts, but listens to religious beliefs, that is not democracy, that is theocracy. When a government does not listen to the people, or to the rule of law, that is not democracy, that is dictatorship. We believe that democracy is the ideal, and it is to this end that we do aspire and work.

OPTION THREE

The stated purpose of democracy is that the government represents the people. When a government does not represent the people, but a certain subclass, that is not democracy, that is aristocracy. When a government does not listen to facts, but listens to beliefs, that is not democracy, that is theocracy. When a government does not listen to the people, or to the rule of law, that is not democracy, that is dictatorship. We believe that the state is destructive to individual liberty and social harmony, and that only the abolition of coercive authority can solve our political, economic and national problems. Anarchy is the ideal, and it is to this end that we do aspire and work.
