Request for input on merge proposal edit
Currently, I've only received feedback from three other people, one pro merge, two against. Only one of those against the merge has given significant feedback and currently I think the discussion is at an impasse. This is so as neither of us have budged from our original positions and the person has stated that they no longer wish to restate their arguments. So, in the interest of not tagging them when they feel that they have said all that they can say, I hope someone here can help tip the scales either way.
The discussion page is here: Talk:Maoism#Merge proposal
My argument could be summarised as the following:
- Modern groups and individuals who refer to themselves as 'Maoists' tend to use the terms 'Mao Zedong Thought', 'Maoism' and 'Marxism-Leninism-Maoism' interchangeably. This is not limited to the west.
- The only sources that have been provided that describe a difference between 'Maoism' and 'Marxism-Leninism-Maoism' are quite old.
- What differences there are with modern Maoism and 'the thought of Mao Zedong' are minimal at best (imo) and (imo) these differences are vague and often border on sophistry.
- Currently, nearly everything covered by Marxism-Leninism-Maoism is covered in Maoism, and Maoism covers a greater range of content. I'd argue this is due to the two terms being largely interchangeable, not due to editors getting things wrong.
The argument against merging (obviously I'm biased here so please read the discussion yourself):
- Maoism and Marxism-Leninism-Maoism are different, the former meaning 'the thought of Mao Zedong' and the latter being an ideology developed after the death of Mao.
- Currently, the article on 'Maoism' is actually about 'Mao Zedong Thought' and the article on 'Marxism-Leninism-Maoism' is low quality but could be developed to include information which would differentiate it from 'Maoism'.
Dahua Technology's minority state ownership edit
Please see Talk:Dahua Technology#Incorrect terminology in infobox and lead - Additional input requested from editors on how to refer to a Chinese company with 11.67% state ownership. This has been a two-party dispute, in which I offered a third opinion, but both parties think additional voices would help settle the question. — SMcCandlish ☏ ¢ 😼 09:26, 11 January 2024 (UTC)
