As long as there are different cultures in the world, tor project will always be caught in a bind. It will face condemnation for permitting speech proscribed by 'us', and milk and cookies for enabling 'them' to get around blocks we deem unreasonable or evil. Few people will have the sense to question 'our' proscriptions, and they will be looked upon like enablers, fools or extremists. Makes defending tor tricky.
But this much we should agree on. Any minority that has no recourse to community outside of tor must be facing formidable forces. To be robbed of the right to assemble, freedom of speech, and the ability to be members of society is the greatest theft imaginable. And yet it happens, right under our noses. Tor, in a sense, grants a right not found in any constitution, the right to basic survival. As long as functioning anonymity systems exist, heresy can continue. And heresy is essential to the functioning of a free society.

Totally up for some heresy; but I'm not convinced that TOR is as secure -even if used properly- as it's cracked up to be. It's certainly better than nothing but if my life depended on it, I'd be using it as one of the anonymity layers...not the whole thing.
