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.

Worldwide General Strike
on May Day
May Be Game Changer


Global general strike:  no work, no school, no shopping.  May day, old school:  it may come as a surprise that there are so many people that feel they have been mistreated, exploited, disregarded, or oppressed -- but after May 1, 2012, their usually voiceless and invisible presence will instead  have had a recent and immediate impact.

h/t Occupy Oakland.

Be seeing you..


  1. In most countries May 1st is official holiday. US-centric ignorance alert!

  2. Ok... it won't be difficult for me since I rarely have any banking business... work for myself... and only buy food every other weekend or so.
