interesting article on Keynes indicating he was an arrogant and corrupt man

Here is an interesting article on Keynes which appears to show that he was a prideful and dishonest person: For example, he appears to have pretended to read a book that was an economics work that was written in German and the claim he it contained nothing new. It later came out that he Keynes could not read German. After all is said and done, Keynes appears to be have been an arrogant and corrupt man. conservative 20:43, 22 January 2011 (EST)

I am curious about calling Keynes a pedophile, there is no proof of this on the interent. Is it still ok to put this in Conservapedia.

Arrogant and homosexual, but evidence as being a pedaphile? There is not even any reference to it in the article. DavidMilton 18:43, 27 August 2011 (EDT) Yes, there is no evidence of pedophilia anywhere. I can find no reliable source on the internet which has any. I think that this is just a childish rumour that the author invented. --Samsonnn 13:12, 13 November 2011 (EST)

This seems more like an attack article on Keynes. mixing politics and economics usually has bad results... anyways keynes was right when it comes to demand fueling an economy -youngconservative132

Deleted - The cited reference gives no support for pedophilia. All homosexaulity would have been illegal in Britain during time Keynes is reported as going with a 16 year old. The age of 16 is the current age of consent in Great Britain. The question of morality may rest in both/either engaging in secual contact with a partner of the same sex; and at the most Ephebophilia (the desire for late adolsecents) rather than pedophilia). Leaving this in the article is therefore contrary to the credibility of the article DavidMilton1 18:38, 17 March 2012 (EDT)

Logic flaw

This article is rife with Ad Hominem arguments. To protect it's validity and credibility, someone should remove all Ad Hominem arguments. Also, only one person (Zygmund Dobbs) has ever made any accusations of paedophila. Another source should be found to back this up.

"The inclusion of sexual orientation in a biography is generally prohibited due to the Commandment against gossip. In the rare instance where the subject has publicly self-identified that their sexuality is important, then the subject's own quotes should be used as a source." BryanF 18:57, 26 December 2012 (EST)
