- Actually, it is sourced near the end of the cited NYT article, but I tend to agree that the way it is currently just dropped in, it doesn't seem too relevant. Fat&Happy (talk) 03:20, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
"Traditional" vs "Conservative" vs No Descriptor Included
As an uninvolved editor, I'm opening this discussion thread, in an attempt to gain consensus for one of these two words. There appears to be something of a slow motion edit war beginning to swirl over the wording, and I'd like to nip this in the bud, if possible. Note: I come into this discussion with a completely open mind, and am willing to be convinced either way. LHMask me a question 15:26, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
- "Traditional" is quite apparently not POV, whilst "conservative" without a specific secondary reliable source for the exact usage might be considered POV. It is the onus of the person seeking that change to obtainWP:CONSENSUS for it per policy. See WP:BRD etc. BTW, this is not about a person being politically "conservative" or not but rather specifically about his approach to Federalism. Collect (talk) 12:29, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
- To play devil's advocate to your argument, how is "traditional" not POV? What I mean by this is, the opposite of "traditional" is what? Non-traditional? Isn't that, at least slightly, a POV-ish formulation? Meanwhile, it could be argued that "conservative" and "liberal" (or "progressive", perhaps) are simply descriptors. Taking off the devil's advocate hat for a minute, I guess what I'm asking is why you see "traditional" as "quite apparently not POV." While I can be persuaded to see it as less POV than "conservative", I don't think it's as obvious of a case as you present it to be. LHMask me a question 14:10, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
I originally reverted the change from traditional to conservative because, on its face, the change was more POV than the existing word. However, I noted that there was no citation for either characterization or that there had been a change from the "past". I've therefore just changed the article to be completely neutral and just quote what he said in the interview. Unless we can cite something to describe his views in a particular way and that they had changed (from when?), we should leave it neutral and let the quote speak for itself. Anything else is WP:OR.--Bbb23 (talk) 14:20, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
- I can certainly see some advantages to this approach. I had considered doing so myself, but decided instead to open this discussion thread. I am also changing the thread title accordingly, to reflect the existence of three primary options. LHMask me a question 14:30, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
- As the editor who are the original change form "tradition;" to "conservative" I am fully satisfied with your edit, which avoids the use of normative linage (i.e. as if anyone who didn't accept Roberts views on jurisprudence or Federalism as being non-traditional. Well done. Lestatdelc (talk) 01:38, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Seizures / Football Captain Background, Americans for Safe Sports Example
i was going to use Chief Justice Roberts as a counter-example to the principle that tackle football damages the brain. But now, having glanced at this health section, and on the Understanding that it's credibly and properly reported, and verified correctly, i'm now missing a templar for an "Safe Sports America" counter-example on gridiron brain injury hazard. The last thing We need is any recurrent or lurking brain injury for the next and future Associate Justice Appointments.
This is absolutely not a point connected to the Chief Justice's extraordinary capability and well-known brilliance. This is only a note of concern about the dysharmonies of gridiron, and the long latency of its total deleterious effects. i was very much hoping this would go the other Way, and be an uncategorized but silent risk state, a Complete, 100% Harrison Bergeron case, and it's not. There's a recurrent idiopathic seizure being reported here, with a 60% prognosis of recurrence reported in this Wikipedia article, as of J015 - 09月28日. A fall of "5-10 feet" of the Chief Justice of the United | States, is a very serious Interanacional Security Incident. i don't know if it can be pinned on a Youth Athlete Review Herstory of Gridiron Football, but it's another, more dark and serious point of reconsideration on Gridiron (again, not the Chief Justice Selection, but the still-lurking epileptic risks). The last thing i want to see is the Chief Justice reporting that s|he'll need to retire early because of, or even as a partial result of a contributing factor, of Gridiron Decades Back. H|er brane integrity outranks all but a handful in the U|S. Exceptions might include the Governors, the President, the Speaker of the Hh|ouse, the Senate Leader, an Associate Justice the Chief Justice esteems and mentors as an equal, for succession optionality. That's about all i can imagine, with that last unrecognized and inexpressible by anyone but the Chief Justice.
This remark is wholly dependent on the accuracy of the Sources used by the Wk³ calm⁴unity, which i openly confess i have not root-traced, or even checked on a first-pass. i don't want to get trapped by a "citation lookup failure".. i know Wikipedia is reliant on regular root-tracings and calm⁴unity discussion. If the Sources unravel (i have some private doubts, at times, about the stability of this media environment.. i once changed the Semmelweis article, for example, with "learned helplessness" Seligman, et. al. "yoked-dog depression" causal mechanisms with a speculative "or" chain, and it persisted, and may still persist [the theory is very properly applied, and meets the evidence, but probably doesn't meet Wk³⁶ Standard, except thru my own Semmelweiss "amateur scholar" assertion of posthumous, inferential diagnostic applicability, and i lack a medical degree and psychiatry residency⁵]), this remains as a mark of concern for the hidden latency costs of gridiron, with Chief Justice Roberts returning to a perfect "Harrison Bergeron" Case, with an unseen black swan neurological plaque-up risk.
