Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: first, to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; last to not only fighting for personal privacy & the freedom of information, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. She is a poet, always. All these efforts find representation here: "ah, Mephistophelis" is so named after the last line of Christopher Marlowe's Dr. Faustus, whose heretical success flouted the censor for a time.


One Day After 2007 Attack,

Witnesses Describe US Killings of Iraqi Civilians

(reposted from Democracracy Now!)

Be seeing you.

  1. It's hard to make split-second decisions of life and death looking at a tiny video screen in a moving helicopter where you could be killed yourself. The key point is that the U.S, shouldn't fucking be there. This is the nature of warfare whether waged by the U.S. or anyone else. See these comments by a member of the very same Company involved in the Wikileaks video.
