Is this a statement or an argument/opinion? ;-)

An opinion that I think we should discuss and make a policy :)

I have a hard time thinking what could be discussed about the above. These three reference points (and in that order) are necessarily the lowest common denominator for all pirates world-wide.
If anyone wants to discuss anything around the matter I am more than interested, though.

Nonetheless is it important to explicitly make these points very clear and grave them in stone at a very prominent place.

So from my point of view we should decide on this ASAP and make it part of the preamble of our future constitution.

All three documents align to my beliefs so I would be happy for that to be a policy :-)

I've noticed that some Pirate Parties around the world do not list/support all of the core policies of the Pirate movement. So I would like to break down the Uppsala Declaration and ensure that each statement within is supported by our party.

The Uppsala declaration was when the movement was mostly European so revisiting it statement by statement would be a good thing to do - there will be cultural as well as legal differences to be examined..
