Hi - you're invited to join in a discussion on the inclusion of the EU in the List of countries by GDP (nominal) article. Regards 23:13, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
The Mediation discussion regarding the inclusion of the EU in List of countries by GDP (nominal) has come to a conclusion with the following result:
- The EU to remain in List of countries by GDP (nominal).
- The EU to be positioned according to GDP rank between World and USA.
- No consensus on the EU appearing in all three charts. By convention this means the situation would remain as current - that is the EU remains on all three charts.
- Data for the EU on each chart to only be given if sourced, otherwise a dash to replace the data.
- Explanation to be placed in the lead section for the appearance of the EU and other non-countries. Possible wording: "Several economies which are not
normallyconsidered to be countries are included in the list because they appear in the sources. These economies are not ranked in the charts here, but are listed in sequence by GDP for comparison."
- The List retains the current name.
- A suggestion by Tomeasy that I feel should be carried out is that the sister articles are given the same treatment as agreed above.
Unless there are significant disagreements within the next 48 hours I will be closing the Mediation. Any questions, please get in touch. Regards10:48, 21 June 2008 (UTC)
Daniel Ellsberg: "Cheap psychologizing" -- yes, but ....
Regarding your point here , I've made an edit described here: . I might at least amuse you, but any serious thoughts you have about how to treat of the pyschological subjects mentioned in my write-up of the edit would also be greatly appreciated. Yakushima (talk) 13:08, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
Götz von Berlichingen
Re: names of SS divisions. Wanting to celebrate "German" history, the Nazis had a problem in that united Germany didn't exist until 1870. Many of the popular figures of past ages were not really nationally known, although a few were. This drive to celebrate a "national" history that hadn't really existed for even one hundred years by World War II is likely what led to the selection of figures like Gotz v. B. and Florian Geyer to serve as namesakes for some of the divisions. Even so, it was hardly a thorough program as many of the SS division names were a sort of self-licking ice cream cone, reflecting admiration for the SS itself, the Third Reich, or selected leaders: LAH, Das Reich, etc. W.

Welcome to Wikipedia! I am glad to see you are interested in discussing a topic. However, as a general rule, talk pages such as Talk:Time 100: The Most Important People of the Century are for discussion related to improving the article, not general discussion about the topic. If you have specific questions about certain topics, consider visiting our reference desk and asking them there instead of on article talk pages. Thank you.

Regards to Amon Goeth's Mental Illness Diagnosis
I had never heard of this before, I wonder what specific diagnosis he was given by the SS doctor (were there SS psychiatrists?). Also, did the Allies test him for mental illness, and if they did, what were their results? Did they have a policy on executing mentally ill war criminals? (Keep in mind not all war criminals were mentally ill by definition, that is a bogus moralistic judgment in my opinion, Eichmann for example was found sane by his Israeli psychiatrist.)

- I'm responsible for most of Amon Göth's Wiki page and can answer your questions regarding anything related to him. The Americans found Göth after the war in Bad Tölz, Germany in a sanatorium and surrendered him to the Polish Government. According to the Doctors in Bad Tölz, Göth had mental related issues, (depression and insomnia), because of illnesses he had by the end of the war, (diabetes, liver damage and a diagnosed tumor in his abdomen). Göth tried to use this as a defense during is 1946 trial, but it didn't hold up in court. The allies (Poland Government) did not have him checked out when he was incarcerated, but during the trial, they kept two physicians near Göth just in case he needed assistance. In Poland, they did not have a policy for executing mentally ill war criminals at that time. But I can't speak for the other countries, like the UK and Germany. I hope I was able to answer your questions fully. And if you have anymore, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm not Wiki too much anymore. :) ~Folklore777 (talk) 21:52, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
