WikiSpooks is an open licensed, open source encyclopedia of deep politics. We currently have 11,467 user-generated pages (5,113 people, 1,610 groups, 633 events... ) supplemented by a further 1,351 third party documents.


WikiSpooks was established in 2010 as a collaborative space for the joint re-examination of recent history, focusing particularly on the last 60 years or so.[1] We research people, events, groups and concepts not subject to much scrutiny by corporate media and as such, not tolerated in Wikipedia. WikiSpooks is particularly focused on those official narratives which do not seem to fit the facts.

Editorial Policy

Full article: WikiSpooks:Editorial Policy

A fundamental premise of WikiSpooks' editorial policy is that authority opposes anything which it perceives as a threat, and can bring greater resources to bear than are available to individuals or small groups. This power imbalance becomes especially acute where matters of deep politics are involved.[2] Wikispooks therefore does not aim for a (status-quo friendly) Neutral Point of View[3] and noting that newspapers and broadcasters (like governments) can and do lie with impunity, it does not assume the commercially-controlled media's publication of evidence to be a reliable indication of its veracity.

What Is Wrong With Wikipedia?

Full article: Rated 4/5 Wikipedia/Problems

Wikipedia's editorial policies guarantee a blind spot around matters of deep politics, so information on such topics is superficial and fragmented at best and increasingly no more than a smokescreen. Its adherence to the official narrative as promulgated by establishment-friendly 'reliable sources' effectively means that, to use the astrolonomical analogy from Gallileo's time, "the heavens must always be represented as revolving around the earth".[4]
