The Pirate Party Germany is just a young liberal party defending
benefits for and of middle class business or creative people in the so
called hypermobile city as some belive Berlin may be one.

This polemic: "Narrenschiff"
www.konkret-verlage.de/kvv/txt.php?text=a3 and this analysis: "(Ein
zu entwickelndes) Oekonomisch politisches FQA* zur Piratenpartei 1.0"
www.n0name.de/news/piratenpartei-fqa1.0.txt (both in German) make this
clear.

Their fight against software patents is firstly a fight f o r new
more flexible and freely patens, their fight for such a thing
like network neutrality is a fight for a more flexible data net
based on micropayment biz, their online security and privacy is
one that has to protect small vendors and the "etc" is their basic
believe in the state and pearls like "culture becomes the industry
of the means of production." (by Matthew Fuller in: _Softness:
interrogability; general intellect; art methodologies in software_
