Thanks Jeff. I somehow didn't even recognize the fact that my handle is Propagandhi, and here I am confessing my ignorance of Gandhi. Handle comes from the band www.propagandhi.com - Big anarcho-punk band. Great lyrics, probably surpassing any political band ever in terms of lyrical quality. That being said, I definitely do not subscribe to most if any of their general political views.
