True, but I don't think the main parties take these issues seriously either.
So specialist parties spring up to fill the gaps.

Otherwise, why would they even put TPM in a copyright bill to begin with?
And why does it take a whole party to get environmental issues into the open?

If the main parties were doing their job, the specialist parties would
mostly disappear, I think.

When things that should be legal are outlawed, then outlaws have to
run for government to fix it.
