Thanks for you comments, and hope you get the time to revist the page. Ceoil (talk) 22:45, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

There were five sentences, I took four out. I just put another one back in but deleted urban (as I think rural was important as well), and added working class to lower middle class (because even De Valera talked about how important James Connolly and the Citizen Army were to the Easter Rising). I have small problems with the other two removed sentences, and a very big problem with the sentence talking about the meaning of September 1913, as it is written now. I wrote about this in the page's discussion. Thanks. Adelson Velsky Landis (talk) 02:20, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Vyacheslav Molotov[edit]

So why is it POV to say he remained "unapologetic" of the Stalin's regime crimes? It is sourced you know, so give me a good reason. --TIAYN (talk) 12:06, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

The whole thing reads: "However, after Stalin's death in 1953 Molotov was staunchly opposed to Khrushchev's de-Stalinization policy. He remained unapologetic about the crimes of Stalin's regime, and had few regrets about his actions and those of the Party". Removing the editorializing part of that removes none of the information. Actually, Molotov later in life did talk about errors that had occurred during the purges, but it is correct he did not have any major regrets about his role in the party. WP:WORDS indicates language like "unapologetic about the crimes of Stalin's regime". That is not encyclopedic - Encyclopedia Britannica certainly never reads like that. It is also biased in a variety of ways - the regime web page says regime has a negative connotation, saying "Stalin's government" sounds like Stalin owned the USSR, like King Leopold II of Belgium owned the Congo, as opposed to being general secretary of the USSR's Communist Party, crimes makes no sense - crimes are dealt with by governments, and Stalin was never charged with a crime while in government and so forth.

Images of Norwegians[edit]

I have read your comments regarding the photograph of the Norwegian arrested for involvement in yesterday's tragedy. They are, to put it bluntly, unacceptable. I'm fairly certain that you intended them sarcastically -- I hope you intended them sarcastically -- but they're unacceptable. I request that your next edits be to either remove those comments in toto, or to strike them using <s> </s>.

Thank you. DS (talk) 01:52, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

China "Multi-party" edit[edit]

Hi. I'm going to nitpick you here a bit, since your edit made the page less accurate.

You are correct in saying that China is a multi-party system, however inherently misleading that statement may be. However, you incorrectly "corrected" the article, which did not say that China was a single-party state - it said China is a "single party-led state" (which is true). There was no need for your correction. I will not revert your edit, but will let editors come up with a better solution than "People's Republic", which is itself currently not well developed.  White Whirlwind  咨  21:37, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

I am more towards being opposed to single party-led state, then hung up on People's Republic. China has a number of pre-1949 parties involved in government, such as the Revolutionary Committee of the Kuomintang, China Democratic League and so forth. Adelson Velsky Landis (talk) 17:34, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Sure, there are other parties involved. Those parties, however, do not lead. The Chinese Constitution references this in quite a few instances, most references being something like "中国各族人民...在中国共产党领导下...." The only reference to other parties is this: "有各民主党派和各人民团体参加的" - the key being the difference in language between (Chinese: 领导; pinyin: lǐngdǎo; literally: "lead") in the first instance and (Chinese: 参加; pinyin: cānjiā; literally: "participate") in the second. This description is even more pronounced in actual practice, hence the common and accurate description of China as a state led by a single party. I see your edit has since been reverted by another user.  White Whirlwind  咨  22:13, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

New class[edit]

With respect to your recent edit to new class you might take a look at this source. By the way, if you are interested in communism from a common point of view you might check out Communpedia. User:Fred Bauder Talk 23:42, 16 December 2012 (UTC)


Glad to hear your more international outlook r.e. Thatcher. If it interests you, I saw something recently that has a beautifully sly reference to the timing-thing pulled with Whitlam. It's from Alan Bennett's amazing play A Question of Attribution, with the queen chatting to Anthony Blunt. The reference is right at the start here. (though it's the 2nd part). Thought you might appreciate it. Hillbillyholiday talk 02:39, 14 April 2013 (UTC)

National Liberation Front for South Vietnam[edit]

Hi. I left you a message on the Viet Cong talk page about your recent edits. This is not how you move or rename pages. --Escape Orbit (Talk) 22:11, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
