Yeah, the ideology you smell is probably liberal, though it could also be anarchist.

And he should say that, may it be that ideologies that did not recognise the antagonism between state and freedom were not judged too kindly by history... those that did are nowhere near paradise.

Of course. It is always useful to ask oneself what went wrong in any given situation, and even how the sums of goods and wrongs have brought us to where we stand now.

You can bother to explore the global situation, or even have a serious peek at the perilous pirate one at https://samedokan.wordpress.com/2014/05/10/when-pirates-do-prefer-censorship/ 
It may be periferically interesting for you to know that the Italian lawyer who was a member of the Court of Arbitration of the PPI who received my complaint dared to send me a cease and desist letter because he was convinced of the fact that I was treacherously smearing his good name and credibility. Useless to say he never answered when I dared him to prove any of my stated assertions wrong.

Ask yourself what has been going wrong in the Pirate Community... where even the most obvious gets smashed if it does not please the MOB.

Not since it was taken over by the few apparatchiks trying to ride the idiocratic wave that went over the movement when the German Pirate Party went viral due to their early victories in the most permissive electoral system of the European Union.

In fact... show me one single pirate party exempt of having trouble handling reason, not having been taken over by a simplistic 50%+1 majority mob.
