Chinese Wikipedians seem to be campaigning systematically and sneakily
to slant and censor what it says about recent Chinese history.
Ironically, the article emphasizes the term “open source” whose
purpose was and is to draw attention away from freedom (too
controversial a topic). In a second level of irony, in this specific
case the correctness and quality of articles is about freedom.
My 1998/1999 proposal for a universal encyclopedia
dealt with this by
rejecting the idea that there would be one official article about a topic.
Rather, it allowed for different articles written by different authors
and presenting different points of view.
