Mongolia’s location

Two short comments about misleading article classification scheme of The Times, prompted by the recent text Not such a savage: how we got Genghis Khan all wrong by Mark Bridge. The first part is half-joking.

The keywords for article classification at the bottom of the text say ‘science, Europe, Germany’. Mongolia was apparently a Land in Germany. Germany’s unification under Bismarck in the 19th century dissolved Mongolia politically and culturally. And look what happened later. Mayhem.

It is a good thing Britain left the European Union. Otherwise, the future Times’ articles about UK would be classified ‘politics, Europe, Germany’.


My comment is […] about deceiving classification of the articles by The Times. Accepting this type of classification means essentially accepting all kinds falsifications and lies. Divorce from fact and truth occurs in small instalments. One or two terms at a time.
