Quoted from one of Seykron's previous messages:

"I don't figure out what is the way, but nobody can deny something 
very tense is moving through the world. Our reflections will be lost 
in the ocean of information until someone in the future find it out 
to understand why "pirate parties failed" or why "goverments spy us" 
or the best scenario, "how capitalism became obsolete". 
Comprehensive experience documentation (a.k.a. reflection) is 
essential to understand the future."

Why does it have to be someone in the future?

Imagine someone were able to find out these things TODAY, even 
yesterday :( . How would the world, or even only the pirate 
movement... handle such knowledge?

The difference between aboriginal points of view and more western 
ones lies in the fact that they have not yet fallen in the trap of 
applying advanced mathematics to the question of survival. The sort 
of... only when you control 1/2 of Earth's resources can you be 
relatively sure nobody (not even the 99% of them together) gets to 
control more than you and have a chance to assure their survival 
threatening yours. Please, imagine the enormeous implications of 
such an otherwise simple (as in accessible early in humanities 
timespan) logic.

It is not the aboriginal logic you need to understand, but rather 
your own as practised by the "learned" elites rather than the plain 
peoples, and the consequences of it's mere existence upon all the 
rest of humanity.

They can not be helped in any way other than us getting rid of the 
prisoners dilemma in our survival logic.

Please, revisit your "pirate lenses". Read what Rick Falkvinge, 
founder of the Pirate Movement, writes about it in what he has 
already published online of his forthcoming book "The Swarm". He 
ain't got everything right... but your understanding of pirate 
values, as much as it may be your logical understanding of these, is 
miles away of what he has ever thought about it.

The problem is not SHARING, or the lack of it... the problem is 
ACCUMULATION, when the goal of MORE THAN ONE ENTITY is to reach 
safety through accumulating at least half of everything.

When NOT EVEN ONE tries to accumulate at least half of all... 
because he thinks his survival depends on it mathematically... (Five 
Eyes anyone?)... then Sharing will be Caring, and we will have 
solved peak oil, peak water, and peak X.

What pirate ability are you talking about? Humanism is still not in 
the center of the Pirate Wheel. In fact, it cost me some effort to 
get it on the wheel at all.

Maybe you should try to see beyond the boundaries of the fatal mass 
dynamics of naieve and ignorant horizontal assembly movements. You 
have quite some experience with the downfall of such movements in 

There is NO democratic way out of an IDIOCRACY. Do not become one.
