"Dr. Silberman, a minor character in the first The Terminator movie (who plays a larger role in Terminator 2: Judgment Day and makes a cameo in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) is a psychiatrist who is so convinced that Sarah Connor is a Windmill Crusader that he becomes a Windmill Crusader himself. The time-travelling robots are really No Mere Windmill, but in his refusal to believe this reality he clings on to a Windmill Political about hallucinations."

Uh, no. Silberman did not have a cause to be a Windmill Crusader about. He does fall into the No Mere Windmill trope, but the No Mere Windmill page already has that covered.

no real life examples? oh please, there's plenty of agreement on the titanic being an example of this

or rather I should say the designer and all that, or maybe I've gone and missed the trope that covers it exactly...

Hmm, such historical examples are indeed uncontroversial. Lets allow history examples while still forbidding contemporary Real Life. If it gets out of hand anyway, we can always nuke it.

However, I think people behind the Titanic lacks the Crusader part of Windmill Crusader: The Titanic being unsinkable was a Windmill Political. Adding it there.
