  • Not moving this, we use caps as in the original title. Ashibaka tock 22:34, 28 July 2006 (UTC)
  • Amazon: That's not how it's listed at Amazon, and there's no reason to think that the mis-capitalization is intentional or necessary like in iPod. -Justin (koavf)·T·C·M 20:54, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose: I think we should go with the capitalization as the publisher has it on the book cover, which is Democracy: The God That Failed. Dick Clark 21:52, 8 August 2006 (UTC)
  • If, as well as on its cover, the current capitaliz/sation is used on the title pages in the book, don't rename. David Kernow 05:58, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
It is also capitalized that way (first letter of every word capitalized) on the title page. I can post a snapshot of that page if anyone is in doubt. Dick Clark 15:24, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
  • In that case, keep name per Dick. Regards, David 23:37, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Is "controversial" an injection of POV?[edit]

An edit today added the word "controversial" to the opening sentence of this article. Some would describe the book as "rigorously reasoned" rather than "controversial." Does this description belong? --RayBirks (talk) 03:03, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Not POV as long as it's referenced, as it refers to the reception rather than the content. I'd be interested to learn more about how this book was received, though. Leushenko (talk) 22:22, 14 September 2008 (UTC)


The book is notable, perhaps even enough for its own page (though it was the remarks about gays, rather than the more substantive theoretical stuff about monarchy, that got most of the RS reaction). But I think the merits of a merge to the Hans-Hermann Hoppe page should be discussed. Steeletrap (talk) 05:11, 8 November 2013 (UTC)

Actually, the DTGTF material we see in H-H H would be better presented in this article. E.g., this venue could present more of the controversial debate stuff and (perhaps) avoid balance problems in the main BLP. – S. Rich (talk) 05:27, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
Oppose I'm sure all the neutral info would be purged if it was merged. CM-DC surprisedtalk 16:46, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

TFD re H-H H book invite[edit]

For editors who have interest in H-H H, I invite you to look at this TFD. – S. Rich (talk) 08:13, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
