They may have to go WAY underground. Everyone knows several countries have already outlawed Tor & other internet uses / sites. Julian Assange was way to visible to carry out his mission, whether one agrees w/ his agenda or not. If gov'ts can't stop persons / organizations they deem embarrassing or threats because of free speech rights, they'll invent other charges against them. Again, I just can't see
  many gov'ts leaving Tor alone, when (unfortunately) it * presumably *allows "combatant enemies" to easily communicate anonymously. Democratic nations may not ban it, but they have to protect their national security & they won't sit idly by while terrorist groups thumb their noses at security agencies. It's unfortunate that the use of Tor for true, non-violent free speech & access to info & it's use for more sinister purposes get mixed together. It was once unthinkable that US & other free countries would listen in on potentially all citizens' conversations or read private mail (electronic or paper) w/o court warrants, but it's here & so far, people pretty much accept it. _______________________________________________ tor-talk mailing list tor-talk at lists.torproject.org https://lists.torproject.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/tor-talk Could you possibly supply a list of truly democratic countries?
 I don't think anymore exist - in reality.
