Writing is not hiding. It's never safe. Even writing anonymously. At these times, anonymity is an illusion. You can choose to come up and attack one person or idea face to face and then vanish away safely amidst the confusion. Then defend by denying or insisting that you’ve been misunderstood or misquoted. Or just simply don’t show up again. But once you wrote about something, and published it, you present yourself openly and almost permanently for criticism and offense. And you have to live with it. Not that death would end it.
