IMHO, PP-DE failed by publicly broadcasting their own national assemblies'
debates. There is nothing relate to transparency on broadcasting people
debating, because non-pirates have a very different idea on how parties
work and they don't understand the bickering and assume that PP is a weak
political party.

So here I want to define a difference between transparency in parties and
transparency in government. Transparency in parties must be for its
members, except for "non-human" information like financial data or anything
else that are facts (no third party opinions involved).

Transparency in government must be for all citizens, because being citizen
is, bridging gaps, like being a company's shareholder. You "invest" (pay
taxes) on a common project (your country) and you must be able to demand
information and answers about what they are doing with your "investment".

We must not apply the same kind of "golden hammer" for everything.
Transparency in PP-DE is a good example of "golden hammer" went wrong.
