The rapid change that has occurred since the final quarter of the 20th century on information technologies has shaped the social life in considerable amount, with the rise of the computerization ratio and the internet access opportunities. The internet, that offers the opportunity to present the diversity of the imaginary world to the target mass, besides the daily activities, arose as a new socialization platform. Just like every product and foundation that gains importance due to the gist of the capitalist system;internet, too has rapidly commercialized. While the idea of that the facilities the internet can provide has started to be restricted with the commercialization, is started to be expressed in various regions of the world, the first political organization that made this subject a political struggle field has been the Swedish Pirate Party. In the changing world unlike the past, the struggle field of criticism of the system is not the streets but contemporarily it has started to be the internet which provides rapid organization. Though their mental substructure is controversial, an idea movement and their statements which arose in Sweden and has constituted a political party in 40 countries and continues their effort to constitute a political party, were studied in terms of political communication. This research was carried out at Luleburgaz Vocational High School, Kirklareli University and the evaluation were made based on the findings obtained. Considering the broad universe of the research, it should be stated that extending the chosen sample to the universe will create improper conclusions as this paper is a leading research on the issue. It should be expressed that the results of the research shall be tested in a form that may scale the universe in order to be generalized. When the results of the research are analyzed, a positive attitude has been observed in general to the discourses of the Pirate Party. However also the ones, who expressed positive opinions on the establishment of such like a party, substantially stated that they won't vote this party and these are the remarkable findings of the research.
