RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $3500Goal: $3500

A breed of people that became much more apparent in the 1980s when their deeds were celebrated. Their lineage can be traced back to biblical kings, and to medieval monarchs and nobles who did whatever they wanted without regard for the feelings of the majority. The mantra of the classic RWB is "Fuck you Jack, I'm alright".

Class members[edit]

Religious leaders[edit]

National leaders[edit]

Arts and letters[edit]

  • Michael Crichton


Treasonous heroes[edit]


Modern "magnates" and press barons[edit]

Just plain bastards[edit]


Mixed breeds[edit]

There are also people of an apparent dual nature who display complex behaviour, sometimes displaying all the attributes of a RWB but having charitable facets. It might be thought that this is intended to create a good public image and thereby deflect criticism thus increasing profitability, but this is obviously not true. Is it... ?
