Sick of our electoral debacle? Check out Iceland, where the radical Pirate Party is improbably poised to win their election with a quarter of Icelanders' support, more than any other party. Riding a wave of post-Panama-Papers rage at corrupt business as usual, the Pirates would reject the two governing parties to form a coalition with small progressive ones to work for direct democracy, free speech and transparency.
