This seems a poor page[edit]

While descriptive excerpts from a relevant speech and self-desciptive liturature are both proper and useful, I hardly think it should stand as the bulk of an entry, especially for an actively lobbying, political interest group. Self-description is frowned upon by Wikipedia, is it not? Neither organizations nor individuals are encouraged to create or alter their own entries. So it stands to reason that self-describing speech should not be excerpted as the primary decription of a given entry. I believe this was done as a way of creating the text out of only verifiable facts, in order to stave-off partisan bickering over a potentially politically charged entry, but it still amounts to laziness. That bickering (more properly, "discussion") is part and parcel of the Wikipedia process and any effort to get around that inevitably results in subverting the democratic intent. I would suggest that interested editors write their own copy and use the relevant speech(es) and literature as supporting references, rather than as the body of the entry. 24.21.86.142 09:55, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

The problem here is that once a person not from the left makes a known edit the bias Editors water down the truth. This is the direct reason for http://www.conservapedia.com to give its answers to the hate going around the web. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.122.31.30 (talk) 14:36, 3 October 2009 (UTC)
So are you saying Conservapedia promotes the same ideology (white nationalism) as does the NPI? Stonemason89 (talk) 00:55, 5 May 2010 (UTC)
