Is your name really John Smith?

No, my name is not John Smith. It is a pseudonym. Rather than self-censorship, I choose anonymity. One of the most common names in western civilization will gain credit for any wisdom that I happen to produce. Words, however accurate or useful, are too easily used as weapons against the speaker. That is the price that must be paid, as freedom of speech has its cost.
