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.

And on the other hand, not basing your educated and voiced opinions of the document could likely end badly.

I hate to see my people taken in by propaganda.  Especially dumb propaganda.

Be seeing you.
