﻿DEMOCRATIC OUTLAWS ?
Pirates, the outlaws of the sea. If like me, the first idea that comes to mind regarding
pirates is a group of raiding and plundering individuals. This is due to today’s society glamorizing
the pirates as fascinating characters. Historically, not much written information has been left
behind. The pirates did not leave ship logs or accounts of plunders, because it could be used to
incriminate them. Society today has invented the pirates
showed first 75 words of 1168 total
showed last 75 words of 1168 total
own societies. The way in which the pirate community
governed their society is an example of pirate human decency.
