Wikipedia Wants to Eliminate The Federalist! Oh, noes!
When I saw the entry at memeorandum proclaiming that "Wikipedia Is Now Trying To Eliminate The Federalist's Online Entry," I was flummoxed.
When I saw the entry at memeorandum proclaiming that “Wikipedia Is Now Trying To Eliminate The Federalist’s Online Entry,” I was flummoxed. I mean, The Federalist, popularly known as The Federalist Papers, is among the most important collection of documents in American history. In it, three key Framers of the US Constitution—Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay—explicated the rationale behind various provisions of the charter written in Philadelphia and championed its ultimate ratification. How could Wikipedia even think about removing its entry?
Alas, the link took me to an article at some blog called The Federalist that was apparently founded by Ben Domenech and some people I’ve never heard of. Somehow, that strikes me as less noteworthy.
