    Looking at the adjectives and modifiers, not factually neutral, so many hidden value judgments in the presentation that it becomes anti-factual. Caricature and misrepresentation. Two thumbs down for this.

      This was adapted from an earlier opinion piece so some of that may have come across. However, you should provide specific examples and counter evidence if you are going to make generalised opinion statements such as that. Everything here is backed by extensive independent evidence.

    When this articles would have been well written, I would have translated it with pleasure as well. However it is far too long and has no structure. Please consider how attractive this article is for a reader.

      Hi there, thanks for your comment. Are you referring to the formatting, without paragraph breaks?

        1. Rewrite

          Yes, it was minor tech hiccup and it should be fixed permanently now. Thanks.
