IMHO, Tor is, much like any other software, a tool. A tool is used to
accomplish a goal. In this case, the goal is freedom of information for the
Irani people or phrased otherwise evasion of lawful interception in Iran.

Now, one may think whatever one wants about the way a tool is used (a hammer
can be used to make a shed, or it can be used to permanently ventilate
brains), but the tool is still the tool. A tool cannot have a political
view, and I am convinced Roger et al will do their best not to let their
personal views on any matter bleed too much into the codebase of tor.



Simple guidelines to happiness:
Work like you don't need the money,
Love like your heart has never been broken and
Dance like no one can see you.
