"Stop whatever you’re doing right now and listen to this eight-minute speech from Christopher Lauer, a Member of State Parliament in Berlin who was elected last fall. After you’ve seen the speech (after clicking Play, press the uparrow and then CC to turn on subtitles in English, as I did), try to tell me with a straight face that Pirate Party politicians isn’t exactly what is needed to reconquer democracy and make a government for the people, by the people. Now, you need to remember as you watch this, that this man is actually an elected representative. He is a Member of Parliament in Berlin, elected for the Piratenpartei, the German Pirate Party." ‎- silpol
