I used to edit wikipedia. Not much but if I saw something was missing I would try to fix it. Now a days much of it is looking like propaganda to me. It still has decent general information, but anything touching politics is suspect.

This goes back to the discussion of truth of information on the internet in general, so available yet so hard to vet.

Everybody is trying to sell something. In Brazil they call advertising "Propaganda" It helps to be skeptical, and unemotional about what you read and see online. I noticed that Wikipedia removed the list of type of Eugenics. Previously it had a list thaat included abortion as a form of negative eugenics. Apparently someone completely edited that out.

Anyway just saw this

Youtube is there to make money, not support your anti abortion agenda.

Perhaps those who don't like what's on Wikipedia should... Edit it?

Yes, I propose that You, Neverfail, Sertorio, Cassowary, Doc (and Mr Perfect if he ever returns) and Izz (for a bit of needed wit) moderate a thread here to define SOCIALISM.

Come up with a single "living" post to display the current definition for others to be enlightened by.

Uh huh...

Zero Hedge might be Russian disinformation too. So maybe, Wiki is controlled by the Russians.

Yes, I recall once or twice proposing something similar. Have at it, all you advocates for socialism vs capitalism. Please don't sabotage our other discussions.

Too many arguments with people insisting on playing with stacked decks.
