Wikipedia does have its challenges, or so the academics would have us believe.

Being a public-driven encyclopedia the facts may be questionable.

Folks! That’s a great thing about Wikipedia!

Mark Twain told us to question everything! He wasn’t just being cynical and warning us to beware of misinformation; he was telling us to dig deeper to unpack and unravel truths.

Wikipedia gives us that too. As the librarian at my university said, always look at the resources at the bottom of each page and extend your research there… it will enlighten and extend your understanding.

All this to say, people and their unique perspectives are the truths that must be read to be able to understand the context of all information… let people write… not just removed academics.
