    Inside Wikipedia's leftist bias: socialism pages whitewashed, communist atrocities buried

    "The days of Wikipedia's robust commitment to neutrality are long gone," co-founder Larry Sanger said.

    Big tech has faced repeated accusations of bias and censorship, but one platform has escaped much scrutiny: Wikipedia.

    The online encyclopedia, which claims "anyone can edit", is the 13th most popular website in the world, according to Alexa's web rankings. Google gives it special placement in search results.

    But critics – including Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger – tell Fox News that many Wikipedia pages have become merely left-wing advocacy essays.

    ---------------------------

    The following are interesting highlights from the article:

    Wikipedia pages related to socialism and communism contain stark examples.

    The two main pages for "Socialism" and "Communism" span a massive 28,000 words, and yet they contain no discussion of the genocides committed by socialist and communist regimes, in which tens of millions of people were murdered and starved.

    "The omission of large-scale mass murder, slave labor, and man-made famines is negligent and deeply misleading," economics professor Bryan Caplan, who has studied the history of communism, told Fox News.

    The pages include plenty of history, Caplan noted, and are not confined to just philosophical claims. But the history focuses on flattering claims.
    ---

    -- Wikipedia’s Socialism page announces: "The Soviet era saw some of the most significant technological achievements of the 20th century."

    It ignores a man-made famine in which Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin commandeered the food from regions like Ukraine and Kazakhstan, leaving millions to starve to death even as the Soviet Union exported grain to foreign countries.


    And more.

    Stop spreading 1930’s Nazi propaganda, you moron.

    Yup. It’s all there. No leftist cover-up, no Jewish elite blindsiding you, no removal of facts.

    Fascist.

    Does Wikipedia detail how millions have died under capitalist regimes?

    Here's the thing. Wikipedia doesn't have to print lies, just because you think they're true.

    The page on Communism includes a section heading "Criticisms" which links you through to a substantial page focusing on the failures and crimes of Communism. This includes extensive coverage of the mass killings committed by Communist regimes.

    Well lead us off, Suzie. Do tell, what *actions* did capitalist regimes take to kill millions? I'll listen.

    Because that’s the trope you are using.
    And you’re so dumb you don’t even know it.

    I’ve pointed this out to you ten times or so now. Perhaps you should do a bit of research.

    Fascist scumbag.

    That's Ok but it does NOT contradict the author that points to the 28,000 words in
    sections cited for not mentioning the genocides and purges as being part and parcel to totalitarianism.

    After communist - or even hard socialist, takeovers worldwide, genocide,
    starvation, and economic dereliction often soon followed.

    I think it should be mentioned but the socialists don't want to deal with it in much
    the same way a drug user does not want to deal with addiction being a dangerous thing.

    You wouldn’t recognise a communist if he was nationalising your water supply and shagging your wife.

    Ask yourself: how many times have people taken the time to explain to you what communism is and why various regimes cannot be considered communist.
    And ask yourself how the hell is it possible you still don’t comprehend it.

    Ever heard of the Indian and Irish Famines? Caused by capitalists who blocked food shipments and used armed guards to prevent people from getting food.

    One example of many where capitalism fused with Western colonialism killed millions:
