Brief Publisher’s Biography:
I made my way through the mob and Mafia-talking scum, hoping to catch a glimpse of what good was left of the society I believed in as a child.
Many have forgotten that all this chaos was announced that hundreds or thousands of people a day would die violently.
My curiosity has always got the better of my every other instinct since I was a child. All my other peers already infected from an early age by the mafia mentality, or Leviathan, have always hated me for this reason, but education clearly tells us that we must be curious as the more we are able to “see” the more we are able to “solve”.
The survivors of Cosa Nostra and the State, the rescuers and the local Leviathan people are still on this planet. Today there are also the bigoted Pharisees against immigrants, they spew their hatred in the midst of tragedies.
I talked to all of them, trying to figure out what they understood about the world we inhabit. Even the Fascist Militia interrogates all those who linger or look too far beyond their morphic range.
That’s why today I live hidden, but the most important thing is that what I write remains hidden now. Basically Cosa Nostra tried to blow me up since I was 8 years old and the Italian Republic thanked me by sending me to prison for months making me live and sleep among rats.
What if they find me, or if what I write becomes public domain? I can’t give any answers, my mind goes into chaos, lucid again for brief moments, when I think that I could have chosen another life for myself, have a mate to gently kiss the neck behind the ears like a crazy lil spider climbing softly, telling her my powers, my secrets from the depths, but this very one would sign my death sentence, nullifying the strings of my code.
Basically I’ve just written in an edgy way about the emptiness of suburban middle class life, and upper class life, and while that has gotten me nowhere in this world I’m sure it will take me much further than I think in the valley beyond. If only I had taken a different route, I wouldn’t be here in this godforsaken country, waiting corpses.
Mine is a universe devoid of sentient life. A universe where there are no failed writers, no leviathans, no publishers with hidden agendas, and no mysterious cults that I have to try to defeat by getting them inside my head.
If I close my eyes, I realize that the line between reality and illusion blurs. I can’t tell which is more real and which is a simulation.
In the end I was left with this excruciating sense of cosmic dread that follows me wherever I go.
And as I fall asleep, I know the nightmare will continue no matter where I go or what I do.
This is my destiny.

Pur method: pseudonymous speech…
Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. It thus exemplifies the purpose behind the bill of rights, and of the first amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation, and their ideas from suppression at the hand of an intolerant society, and we responsibly use it.
The right to remain anonymous may be abused when it shields fraudulent conduct, but political speech by its nature will sometimes have unpalatable consequences, and, in general, our society accords greater weight to the value of free speech than to the dangers of its misuse.
– McIntyre v. Ohio Elections Commission 514 u.s. 334 (1995)
Justice Stevens, writing for the majority, observed that although anonymous speech is often maligned – typically by those frustrated by their inability to engage in ad hominem attacks – it has a long and distinguished history in the United States. Mark Twain (a.k.a. Samuel Langhorne Clemens) used this form of speech to criticize popular ignorance, and it was used to great effect by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay (also known as Publius*) to write the Federalist Papers.
In light of the increasing trend of silencing public dissent in the Western Worlds, we believe that anonymity is of critical importance for dissident speech. Like The Economist magazine, we also believe that anonymity keeps the focus on the content of the speech, rather than on the speaker – as it should be. We believe that not only should you be comfortable with anonymous speech in such an environment, but that you should be suspicious of any speech that isn’t.
Public figures, both Capitalists and Marxists, often make accusations such as “You don’t have any real conviction if you don’t reveal your true identity.” They use derogatory labels like “keyboard lions”, “keyboard warriors”, and “avatards” to discredit those who choose to use pseudonyms, implying that they need to “prove themselves” by engaging in public activism and attacking the wrongdoers of their nation while keeping their own and their family’s identities private. These television puppets, who are often funded by unscrupulous characters, mock and ridicule those who engage in political discourse anonymously, branding it as an act of cowardice.
Despite the fact that many people remain silent and remain anonymous, they still have the right to speak out and to be heard. However, those who choose to stay anonymous are often deemed cowards and ridiculed by society. Take, for example, the courageous writers at Medusa8-Yoshiwara Club, who wrote extensively and fearlessly about the Mexican Cartels, Sicilian Mafia, the Ndrangheta, the Camorra, and other topics of great relevance and importance. Why, then, should we be judged and dismissed for choosing to remain anonymous when we speak out about the same things? We should have the same rights and be given the same respect as those who use their real names.
We have previously discussed the importance of the Insult in Ancient Rome, which was a sign of great political democracy. Yet while these well-paid public figures living in mansions and driving fancy cars enjoy their many privileges and benefits, they try to discredit those who communicate anonymously, as they understand the power and effectiveness that such pseudonymous communicators can have within our movement. Despite their attempts to delegitimize them, these anonymous voices still matter and have made a significant impact.
Pseudonymia is an ancient practice that dates back to the formative years of European and American political systems, particularly in Italy and the United States, but also in Germany and the United Kingdom. It was the heroic figures who adopted pseudonyms, such as the Carbonari, who shaped the world we live in today. These individuals were often viewed as courageous and daring, risking everything for the sake of their beliefs. Unfortunately, many of these figures are now seen in hindsight as having contributed to the rise of some of the world’s most powerful and controversial public figures, who have since accused the rest of us of being too cowardly to stand up for our own beliefs. Nevertheless, their courage and dedication to their causes will never be forgotten.
Pseudonymia has been a part of the political discourse in Europe and the Americas since the days of post-absolutist monarchies. For centuries, federalists and anti-federalists alike have advanced their arguments through treatises, essays, books, and pamphlets written under various pseudonyms. Patrick Henry, for example, wrote under the name “Senex”, while one of the authors of the Federalist Papers, Publius, was a pseudonym used also by Alexander Hamilton, the immortal Founding Father who died in a duel while defending his beliefs. His courage and dedication to his cause will never be forgotten, nor will the legacy of those who used pseudonyms to express their views. And who forgot that Julian Assange was Mendax?
At last not least, in established newspapers, you may come across articles that are signed only by the name of the newspaper itself. These articles are written by an anonymous journalist from within the newspaper’s editorial team. This practice raises questions about journalistic accountability and transparency. Why are established newspapers allowed to publish articles anonymously when independent journalists are often required to openly disclose their identity?
One possible reason is that established newspapers have built up a reputation for journalistic integrity over many years. Readers trust their brand and may be more likely to believe the information presented in an anonymous article if it is published by a reputable newspaper. However, this does not necessarily make it right or ethical for established newspapers to withhold the identity of their writers. It is worth noting that many traditional newspapers do provide attribution for their articles, either by name or by pseudonym.
On the other hand, independent journalists and bloggers are often not afforded the same level of trust by readers. Without the backing of a recognizable news brand, they may find it more difficult to attract readers to their work.
This created a power imbalance that favors traditional media outlets over independent journalists.
As for internet monopolies, such as Google and Facebook, they do have the power to regulate content on their platforms. However, they are often criticized for inconsistent and opaque policies that disproportionately target certain kinds of content and speech. Additionally, they have their own economic interests to consider and may be more likely to enforce policies that favor established news outlets over independent sources.
All of our Western civilization is built upon the works of anonymous authors —the Gospels, the New Testament, the U.S. Constitution, and the Unification of Italy, led by the Carbonari— and the courageous sacrifices of countless anonymous soldiers who have given their lives to protect freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and the fundamental principles of justice and truth.
Here you cannot catch criminals hidden behind masks, but rather dissidents with the sole right, and the solemn duty, to defend Aequitas and Veritas super omnia.
These works and sacrifices are the foundation of our civilization, and we must never forget the invaluable contributions made by those who remain anonymous.
*Publius was a collective pseudonym used by three Founding Fathers of the United States: Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay. The three authors wrote a series of 85 articles and essays, known as The Federalist Papers, in support of the ratification of the United States Constitution.
