A Priesthood of Privacy

An orthodox order of cryptans

Practicing a religion founded on protecting personal digital sovereignty

So committed to privacy that they sacrifice their worldly life

They open their lives to almost every kind of scrutiny

They live within the intersection of many ethical sets


And their purity gives the rest of us protection

As we offer our encrypted digital confessions

And they absolve us and wash our data clean

They forgo privacy so that others can have it

They're like living onion routers

A Code of Honor

The privacy they give us is founded on a faith in us

A faith that we will act honorably

An acknowledgment that in our pursuit of privacy

We are also invoking a kind of anarchy

and for that turn towards freedom to be fruitful and beautiful

we must learn to govern ourselves well
