I would like to model how academic and political fields related to each other. Many ideas come from opposition towards a (then-dominant) paradigm. I also consider it as important for covering relevant knowledge. E.g. One of the most important properties of the idea known as "Marxism" can be seen as that it is an explicit criticism of another idea, "capitalism". "Free Software" is an alternative and opposition to software with proprietary licensing etc. Without such information, the practical, political or historical relevance of the topics is hard to understand. -- Simulo (talk) 14:23, 29 September 2019 (UTC)

Note: Feel free to suggest a different name, if you think it does not match the intended use or if it clashes with other properties. I e.g. considered "argues against" and "criticizes", too. Simulo (talk) 16:27, 29 September 2019 (UTC)


I never suggested a property before, so there might be missing info in the template (was unsure about the "domain") or misinterpretations of the appropriate procedure. -- Simulo (talk) 14:29, 29 September 2019 (UTC)
