Wikipedia's main page could be used for advocacy

In the real world consensus is achieved via the public schools and universities. On Wikipedia, the main page would be useful. The founders could write essays on various topics from "Why razing people is not editing" to "How to use the public library in the computer age." The series of instructive essays could be published serially on the main page as a biannually repeated course. It could replace the "In the news" section which is obsolete. As wikimedia matures, I suppose the English Wikipedia might be divided into US and UK versions, since the languages and culture are rather different. For example, billion doesn't mean the same in the US as it does in the UK, and perhaps the "discussion" tab could be called "editing log," since conversation isn't usually going on. --Chuck Marean 04:10, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
