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.

NSA Spying:
Proof We Had Proof As Far Back As

Even farther, if I remember right.  Back before the Dawn of Internet Time, before the tubes cooled. When information was passed down, in a careful oral tradition, among the marginalized, the weirdos and the anarchists, the then-nowhere-near-fashionable geeks and the no-longer-hip hippies, the bikers, the hyper-intellectuals, the artists, the Wiccans, and the freaks: gathering around campfires and in smoking circles, on blankets at concerts in Central Park, in tents on government land, and on threadbare couches and carpets in front of episodes of Millenium and reruns of the X files.

But here, here we have proof we told you so. Back then, so there.


Thanks to JYA of Cryptome, as always.  

Be seeing you.
