    The Cuban government is launching its own online encyclopaedia, similar to Wikipedia, with the goal of presenting its view of the world and history

    "Its philosophy is the accumulation and development of knowledge, with a democratising, not profitable, objective, from a decolonizer point of view."

    The entry on the United States, for example, describes it as the "empire of our time, which has historically taken by force territory and natural resources from other nations, to put at the service of its businesses and monopolies".

    LOL, very amusing indeed.
    but hey, it can't be worse than "conservapedia".

    Yup; just like Wikipedia, except that updates will require "administrators' approval."

    Just like Communism. You're free to do anything you like, as long as the government approves.
