What's up with this article? Is a anti-colonial revolt in 30ies Congo relevant for Rationalwiki? On top of that, it's almost completely copied from this Wikipedia article. (Tell Me What To Think) and (I'll tell you what to feel) 16:11, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

I've noticed that the Wikipedia article was probably written by the same author as the Rationalwiki one. Still, is this event relevant to Rationalwiki? (Tell Me What To Think) and (I'll tell you what to feel) 16:15, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
I thought it fell under explorations of authoritarianism. Ashy Waves (talk) 17:08, 6 April 2018 (UTC) Jacquemotte's commentary seems particularly philosophical. The casualties suffered in revolts and rebellions is frequently cited as reason to avoid revolution, even of the peaceful variety (not that this one counts as a peaceful revolt), but people forget there are worse fates that death.
