Actually, that's not quite right. In an ideal world Tor browser (and
Tor itself) should not /need/ to exist. Unfortunately we do not live in
that ideal world.

Those "old white men" did the job they were supposed to do at the time
they were supposed to do it. And in this (old, white) man's view they
did a pretty good job. But as I say, unfortunately the world is not the
same now. I'd guess that if packet switched networking were being
invented now we might be seeing a rather different beast to the IP
stack we currently all know and love. :-)

Happy New Year to all
