Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

 Listen to the wise old man. Unemployment is rampant especially among the young. Skyrocketing inflation pressuring the population, especially the poor and middle class. The police are acting not as public servants but bullies and tyrants and enemies of freedom and liberty. Many people have reached a breaking point. The unrest is not the disease but the symptom of the disease. Wait...This too is coming to America because the same problems exist and the people are losing patients with their politicians that seem to be working for others. Brace yourselves...A storm approaches quickly. America is next.
