An Interview With Pirate Party Founder On His Opposition to ACTA

Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert went to Stockholm to interview Rick Falkvinge, The founder of the Pirate Party in Sweden. ACTA (The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is legislation disguised as a treaty. It is far worse than SOPA and PIPA. It allows private companies and the government to arbitrarily censor Internet content without due process and meaningful appeal. President Obama has signed the treaty but the Senate has not yet ratified it.

Mr Falkvinge had the best arguments against ACTA I have heard to date. He says that most of the leaders of the Pirate Party are recording artists and writers. It has been a long time since I heard a radio interview worth posting.

The reason why artists join the party is to overcome the dinosaurs in the recording industry. The record label and the record distribution mega giant take 96% of the profits and leave what is left over for the artists and composers. By distributing their works directly over the Internet, artists can end the exploitation of their creations and artistic talents.

The Pirate Party of Sweden has two members in the European Parliament and sit with the Greens though he says modern politics transcends Right and Left. The Pirate Party has foreign affiliates. In Berlin they scored 14% in the latest polls for local elections.

I have decided to share two of the visions I had as a child. When I was eight, I had a vision of a future war that killed 99.5% of the world's population. When I was 16 and living in the projects, I had a vision of my future. I was to live in complete obscurity until it came time to stop WW III. When I was about ten, I had read a bio of Nikita Khrushchev which said he survived Stalin by playing the bumbling fool an old Russian peasant trick. I decided to do the same as I had already learned that we did not live in a democracy. The other vision I had when I was in third grade was of the Mind of God and how it interacted in the creation of the world we see. I believe you and I were born at this time precisely so we would have an opportunity to stop this war. As for my personal info, I grew up on military bases and in housing projects. My legs atrophied from starvation as a child. My second step-father died in prison. I used to have to rub my skin to simulate human contact. They did not feed me when I was a child. I do not fight in their wars as an adult.
