Why wikipedia? On March 9, 1976, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission entered an opinion and order enjoining Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc., from using: a) deceptive advertising practices in recruiting sales agents and obtaining sales leads, and b) deceptive sales practices in the door-to-door presentations of its sales agents. The Chicago based World Book encyclopedia was always a higher caliber favorite of mine, along with the endlessly fun The Way Things Work CD-ROM. Although to throw them a bone, Britannica's Great Books of the Western World does seem like an audacious project. Perhaps someday wikipedia will one-day, become a more interactive learning tool for the youth of the world and dispense of the necessity for teachers entirely?
Here's to dreaming and the work necessary to ensure it won't end up like the Great Soviet Encyclopedia, that editors will strive to keep in mind that only they have the power to ensure it's not a barbarian horde but can be something better and to remedy [|Why a cabal is perceived] by always keeping in mind the Iron law of oligarchy/that all organizations drift towards oppression with time. With this being as true of social structures as entropy is in thermodynamics.
While attempting to improve the standard of general-knowledge-nuclear-energy-articles on wikipedia for students, having come from the deep south of the stigmatized anti-nuclear propaganda swamp, that is Ireland. I completely without intent but that of attempting to be concise, accidentally seem to have coined the phrase re-enriched uranium reload...which I consider for whatever reason, to be very funny in how militaristic it sounds, when it's ironically as far as the opposite from the uranium weapon point of view, is concerned. As the isotopes concentrated from the re-enrichment, interfere with making bombs out of it easily/entirely.
