Bei ZDnet gibt es ein Portrait über die Piraten-MdEP Julia Reda: Meet the Pirate who wants to reform Europe’s copyright laws.
However, though these tools have proved effective for the Pirate Party, which is made up of a lot of technologically-engaged, passionate members, Reda does not think that liquid democracy – which relies on volunteers to work – will ever replace the EU’s parliamentary decision-making process, which can be subject to influence by lobbyists. „You need to have people doing this full-time. If you try to outsource [the decision-making process] entirely to volunteers, I feel there would be a huge structural advantage to companies or other organizations that manage to pay people to do that kind of thing,“ she said. „Companies are not going to stop having full-time lobbyists.“
