106. Oh... I think things go pretty well "over here" too. ;)
Edited on Wed Jun-22-05 07:27 PM by tommcintyre
You see, both wiki AND DU are pretty darn good examples of true democracy in action.

Given enough time (and usually pretty quickly), the "truth" is "negotiated" and, consequently, revealed.

So, the "truth-seekers (and tellers) are also revealed rather quickly, aren't they? ;)

And, in contrast, those who "have mostly ducked, bobbed, weaved, misled, misdirected, "misunderstood", obfuscated... and, oh yes spun like a top" are also quickly revealed, aren't they? ;) <Similar to what is generally found on the MSM (main stream media), for example.>

So, those of us who are LEGITIMATELY trying to "save democracy" are very fortunate to have DU, wikipedia - and the internet in general. You see, the internet IS very democratic (and I'm not referring to the party affiliation here). So the truth can still be found here.

Unlike, the MSM for example. In contrast, there, the words are controlled by a very few, and misleading "ten second sound-bites" are quickly expelled from obfuscaters (spinners?) mouths, with little or no hard-copy track record to be remembered (and even re-read, like DU?).

So, after attempting to denigrate wikipedia, you asked me the following question: "gee, you think it'll go better for you over here?" <wikipedia>

So, now I will ask YOU a similar question:

"gee, you think it would go better for you over at the MSM?"
