Posts Tagged ‘Wikipedia’

I have spoken out against Wikipedia’s lack of adherence to its neutral point of view policy, but it is great to get recognition by others in linking to an article on this site in order to provide documentable and accurate evidence in support of serious Wikipedia articles, like this one on the Bank of Montreal, where they linked to my article, Big Five Canadian banks: Consistently paying dividends since the 1800s.

The company has not missed a dividend payment since 1829, paying dividends consistently though major world crises such as WWI, The Great Depression, WWII, and the 2008 Financial Crisis, this makes Bank of Montreal’s dividend payment history one of the longest in the world.[5]”

Image representing Wikipedia as depicted in Cr...

I was at a local gathering in the past week and was informed by one of the prominent attendees that administrators of a Wikipedia page about a group he is affiliated with have laughably denied his own attempts to update the page in order to reflect the fact that he no longer occupies the presidency of said organization.

This is yet another indication of why Wikipedia needs reform, as I demonstrated in my article, Don’t donate to Wikipedia until they live up to their state guidelines, about not applying their neutral-point-of-view standard to articles such as the one on the AIDS scam, in renaming it “HIV/AIDS denialism” from the previous, “HIV/AIDS reappraisal”, and their “9/11 conspiracy theories” article, which fails to present the official government conspiracy theory as such.

5) Coast to Coast AM bans peaceful anarchists

6) The Daily Bell demonstrates the importance of impression management

7) Why is Amazon Canada not selling Dr. Judy Wood’s book, Where Did the Towers Go?

Image representing Wikipedia as depicted in Cr...Upon going to Wikipedia, I saw this plea for help:

Wikipedia is non-profit, but it’s the #5 website in the world. With 450 million monthly users, we have costs like any top site: servers, power, rent, programs, staff and legal help.

To protect our independence, we’ll never run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations: $5 is the most common, the average is about $30.

If everyone reading this gave $5, our fundraiser would be done within an hour. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Wikipedia.

I won’t even consider giving Wikipedia a single red cent until they provide an unbiased platform, and cease to violate their supposed claim of providing a “neutral point of view“, which is contradicted by articles such as “HIV/AIDS Denialism,” “9/11 conspiracy theories,” (without failing to present the official government conspiracy theory as the most prominent conspiracy theory), and completely leaving out references to organizations like Pilots for 9/11 Truth, which has uncovered some damning information.

9/11: InterceptedA Wikipedia search for Pilots for 9/11 Truth turns up nothing as of August 25, 2012. Why is Wikipedia so afraid of them?

An archive.org search shows their site going back to 2006.

Is it because they don’t want certain information getting out to more people, like the organization’s finding that United Airlines Flight 175 (alleged to have hit the South Tower) and United Airlines Flight 93 (alleged to have crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania) were still in the air after they were reported to have crashed?

For more information Wikipedia may not want you to know about, check out Pilots for 9/11 Truth’s documentary, 9/11: Intercepted, which I have included below.

Thomas DiLorenzo

At his February 9, 2011 testimony to Congress, Professor of Economics at Loyola University Maryland, Thomas DiLorenzo, asserted:

“Monetary policy under the direction of the Federal Reserve has a history of creating and destroying jobs. The reason for this is that the Fed, like all other central banks, has always been a generator of boom-and-bust cycles in the economy.”

What he fails to point out, however, are the boom-and-bust cycles that were created in the United States without a central bank. Namely, from 1837 to 1913.

A simple Wikipedia search for “panic of” shows articles for the financial panics of 1837, 1857, 1873, 1884, 1890 and 1907.

So much for the implication, whether intended or not, that financial panics are rare without a central bank.

“It was not the Fed’s subsequent restrictive monetary policy of 1929–1932 that was the problem, as Milton Friedman and others have argued, but its previous expansion.”

DiLorenzo needs to argue for that based on his Austrian economist notion that inflation is nothing more or less than an increase in the money supply, and therefore, the cause of so many of the ills in the economy, and not other reasons, such as unpayable debts.

The question I have for him and other Austrian economists is, without an increase in the money supply, where is the money supposed to come from to pay interest on the debts issued by banks and other lenders?
