Vice has an article titled "Countries that Use Tor Most Are Either Highly Repressive or Highly Liberal," that you might want to read.
"The results show that, controlling for other relevant factors, political repression does drive usage of the Tor network," Jardine writes.
Bridges had the strongest association with political repression. "Moving from a country like Burkina Faso (political repression equals 8) to a country like Uzbekistan (political repression equals 14) results in an increase of around 212.58 Tor bridge users per 100,000 Internet users per year," the paper reads.
If that were the only reason to use Tor you would be absolutely right. But my understanding is that Tor is also used (used more in fact) in countries where the governments will throw you in jail or kill you for the only reason of trying to exercise free speech. Those governments can employ the same tactics to find and jail political dissenters. And that would be a shame. It would be nice to be able to figure out the wheat from the chaff. But there are many governments that I wouldn't want making that determination, including the one being lead by the latest POTUS. In fact Tor might become a necessity for free speech in the USA soon.
Surprise due today. Also the rent.
