Milton Friedman content[edit]

Why does this use all the content from Milton Friedman with a modified intro? Harro5 06:19, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

  • I just reverted this, is there a copyright that is being violated that we need to know about? I'm way too tired to do any research. JHMM13 06:28, 28 November 2005 (UTC)
    • The last paragraph is POV

Bias[edit]

Edits by User:Ramayan need to be checked for POV. Quarl (talk) 2006-02-07 21:09Z

Somebody out to point out that the Anand Marg movement is akin to the Moonies in the U.S. This guy Batra got into academia with these credentials !

External links[edit]

Wikipedia is not a web directory. The primary use of external links is to provide "further reading", more information about the article's subject than would be fitting for an encyclopedia article.

You don't really claim that the the ananda marga website holds such information about Ravi Batra?

Yes. The links are important: place of work, i.e. info about teaching specialisation and AM link gives more info on area of thought and social work at the heart of his scholarly inquiry. Finally, please stop this harassment/bullying activity Pjacobi. Enough is enough!! Ramayan 18:40, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
Pjacobi was right to delete those external links. Wikipedia is not a link farm. Those links are not about the subject of the article, so they should be deleted. Also, you are out of line accusing Pjacobi of harassment. --JHP (talk) 06:03, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Was this article written by Ravi Batra?[edit]

This article seems to be very flattering to Ravi Batra. I can see from the history that much of it was written by a single anonymous editor.[1] That editor even wrote:

Ravi Batra is that rare historical figure that adopts an ideological view, has an impressive intellect that is matched with a rare ability to preen deep into the machinations of the world and follows his convictions unflinchingly by promoting what he believes is best for his fellow man. The world is a better place because of such towering figures, as their efforts ultimately have the effect of pushing out the boundaries of our understanding.

While that paragraph has been removed, parts of the text written by that editor in January 2006 continue to exist to this day. --JHP (talk) 02:24, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

He doesn't come across well. His ideas read as little more than attempting to die semi-religious ideology to serious theory. He made multiple wildly contrasting predictions, and people celebrate that some of them came true, when in reality a set of circumstances in which they were all false was unlikely--MartinUK (talk) 23:39, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Iranian "prediction": please fix this[edit]

"In 1980 he published Muslim Civilization and the Crisis in Iran where he predicted the fall of the Shah..." - It is not a prediction if you comment on the events that happened a year ago; Iranian revolution was in 1979. I don't have the book and can't check what was actually written in it or when was it published. I hope someone will fix this issue, though. --Oop (talk) 09:53, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
