Holocaust denial[edit]

Holocaust denial is among the list of allegations. For historic reasons, this book cannot have referred to what most people would think of as the Holocaust. If there are no reasons against it, I'd suggest deleting this passage. Johannes Hüsing (talk) 10:41, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

How about anti-Semitism?[edit]

How about anti-Semitism? --Ludvikus (talk) 05:07, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

In what sense? I've mentioned it in the lead paragraph now and there is the big box on the right.--Peter cohen (talk) 13:58, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
I see your improvement - of the lead. But I don't understand your question. This text is also universally acknowledge to be anti-Semitic in every sense of the word. If you want a referece, see Warrant for Genocide by Norman Cohn, p. 190. He only uses the word racist there. But it's clearly obvious, and from other sorces I don't have at the moment, that this work is antisemitic in every sense. So I think the "lede" should have that. I think racist applies to any race disparaged. But antisemitism is reserved explicitly against Jews. And this work singles out Jews more that any other race. So please include this categorization in the lede. --Ludvikus (talk) 14:33, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I've changed things further. I'm surprised you aren't being WP:Bold and doing things yourself. You have edited the article before. As to my question, I didn't understand your previous one.--Peter cohen (talk) 15:06, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
Why don't you visit my Talk pages - it would explain to you why I now must now be a "WP:Mouse" instead. Also, you probably could make some good contributions to historical revisionism related articles. But I don't know if you - yourself - could be WP:Bold there! I've made this observation here because of the common link - antisemitism. Do you know what I mean? --Ludvikus (talk) 16:01, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

The[edit]

Do we need the "the" in the title? I forgot the WP style rule on this. --Ludvikus (talk) 05:12, 29 September 2009 (UTC)

Look: "Foundations of the Nineteenth Century." (If it's still Red, shouldn't it be made Blue?) --Ludvikus (talk) 13:58, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
The policy seems to include the article or not based on the actual title of the work in question: The Lord of the Rings, The Go-Between, Der Ring des Nibelungen A Winter's Tale, The Master of Ballantrae.--Peter cohen (talk) 14:04, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
If you want to make it blue, you can create a WP:Redirect. (This link tells you how to do it.)--Peter cohen (talk) 14:04, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
Done. --Ludvikus (talk) 14:35, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
