Seymour Gris: Ex-Nazis amidst the Pirates?

Calling the Paratenpartei ethos "broadly right-wing libertarian" is a bit of a stretch. Libertarian, yes, in terms of "personal liberty". Yet their ideas about free public transport, Grundeinkommen, immigration, political asylum, the environment, and culture could hardly be further from the ideology of the NPD. Besides, I would be interested in seeing some evidence any current connection between Carl Lundstrom and the Pirate Party in Sweden, Germany or elsewhere.

The IT scene is somewhat misanthropic as well.

Moreover, it's been known for some time that the Pirate Bay, from which the Piratenpartei emerged, was bankrolled by a prominent Swedish businessman, Carl Lundstrom, who hasn't quite been able to abandon his neo-Nazi past. It should therefore come as no surprise that the Piratenpartei's broadly right-wing libertarian ethos can accomodate the sort of right-wingers who've learnt the wisdom of tempering their extremism, i.e., they draw the line at massacring schoolkids.

This party emerged from the IT scene - not exactly the most "female" of subcultures. Cliche but true. Give 'em a little more time, I say. They're well aware of the pressure on them regarding this issue.
