Just about anything is illegal/immoral/reprehensible somewhere. Just
about anything is also legal/moral/laudable somewhere. Tor, and the
Internet more generally, is global. There is no privileged viewpoint or
opinion. Even yours, dear reader, as right as you may be convinced that
you are. By design, Tor is viewpoint-neutral. That is its strength.
