Nowadays we have access to an overdose of information and it's not possible for a single individual to sort out all honest information from disinformation and propaganda.

Search engines serve links to Wikipedia articles near the top of their results, but some of those articles are extremely unreliable. And when one looks for better information, the choice is often between two extremes: more unquestioned "mainstream" dogma or "alternative" sites of doubtful reliability.

This new website is meant to serve as a tool for a community of people who want to be well informed. We can achieve much more together while spending less time individually.

  • The focus is our own research-based wiki, correcting selected Wikipedia articles. Planned categories:
    • Fact Checking websites - existing fact checking sites (started already)
    • Current affairs - debated topics that are in the news
    • Society - still relevant topics that have been in the news (or should have been)
    • Environment - air pollution, pesticides etc.
    • Health - medicine, alternative medicine, food supplements etc.
    • Science - history of science, relativity, quantum mechanics etc.
(Proposals for topics here)
Count: 11 pages
  • With a blog (started February 2019). Recent blog posts:
    • Bill_Browder_and_the_European_Court_of_Human_Rights (Magnitskiy myth exploded!)
    • The UN Special Rapporteur on Torture was "blinded by propaganda"
    • Correct information is a matter of life or death

As discussed in Project:Organization and operation, we will introduce a new method to arrive at a reasonably objective and fair presentation of facts in our Wiki articles.


In The News:
Magnitsky wins Russian rights battle 10 years after his death - https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-49481471
Describing Magnitsky as a "whistleblower", the BBC article suggests that he was put in prison for that. However, the article admits that "the court rejected a complaint that his arrest and detention were ill-founded". BLOG POST ON THE MAGNITSKY MYTH HERE
