An arrogant entitlement serves none
Over and over this lasting impression remains. We are very full of ourselves. We think that just because we have the grand idea to be pirates, we are the best possibility for country, even if ignorant and worse, not interested in learning.
Over the last year, the only ideas I have noticed are either copying someone else's idea or overestimating our value. Be it with "tie ups" with causes or now "elections".
Fact on the ground is that we are not even able to generate enough original ideas to keep a discussion forum going. Our plans of grandeur are in the stratosphere. What would a cause benefit from is, if we haven't even been able to speak for ourselves properly to date? No idea. But seems like a grand gesture of nobility that we surely have.
Where is the respect for the democratic values, if we think nothing of using elections as a sandbox without till date having done the smallest thing that would educate any of us as politicians or party? Are we really so full of ourselves as to think we are offering anything at all to anyone at this point?
I speak harsh. I don't have pretty words, I have no interest in sounding likeable and pleasing people. What I see here is a commitment to ignorance and laziness. When the thinking for forming a party got difficult, we ditched the idea and decided to call ourselves a group that isn't even planning to be a party.
We could have supported a million causes without needing a single tie up. What did we do? Nothing. Our land, water, air is being screwed, but we need invitation letters in triplicate with nice ego boosting tie ups before we will raise our voice with conviction. Forget organized effort, did even four heads among us get together to fight something they believed was wrong? When it comes to doing, we are lazy. When it comes to ego boosts, we are so entitled, we don't even see that we have no competence for what we aspire to do. Any question of lack of competence is shrugged off as "so what? we will fail. big deal" but not a finger lifted in any urgency to do anything that could avoid failure.
Aadhaar bill got passed. What was Pirate Party's opinion on it? It doesn't get against Pirate Party values worse than this. Forget Pirate Party - it will impact the lives of every single one of us here with forced registration of our biometrics. It didn't light so much as a cigarette, let alone a fire under our butts to do anything at all about it. We could have done it and failed - like we are fine with for so many of our grand delusions, but we didn't bother.
Big talk, big self opinion, zero action. This is bullshit.

What do you think? Is this right? Closed Sat 30 Apr 2016 5:37PM
This is a vote on whether you think what I say is right. Because, for once, let us be heard in self assessment as well, instead of merely grand ideas to vote on, with no basis in our known actions.

Sure this is happening all around the world, Brazil has the same problem. Or too like the politicians or too like to be against any colaborative and free effort.
