“Themen statt Köpfe”

“Issues rather than heads.” Part of Pirate Marina Weisband’s discussion of the current state of and reporting on the German Pirate Party. She says it’s too bad there is such a focus among some journalists on personalities and people in the nascent political party, because the program is what will establish the group among voters. “Talking about personalities is tempting because it doesn’t require a lot of prior knowledge,” but the pirates have to get to work on the issues at hand, especially figuring out responsible ways for GPP politicians to process/grok hundreds of direct petitions before major political meetings.
