What is Tor Browser?

"The Tor software protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location, and it lets you access sites which are blocked.

The Tor Browser lets you use Tor on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is self-contained (portable)."

    How is this relevant to anyone who isn't a terrorist, paedophile or a junkie?

    People have been imprisoned and murdered for speaking their beliefs.

    I will give an example:

    You simply cannot write anything against the Jewish problem these days without losing something. They have spy software and hardware and agents everywhere, listening in to who questions them.

    If they had nothing to fear from the truth (if they were telling the truth themselves), they would discuss their history and their control over the world openly and let everyone speak and answer questions. But that was not meant to be. Instead they find out who questioned them and they send assassins over.

    So it is very important to hide your location and identity when speaking the truth. The bad guys are in control and they are not your friends. If you're not one of them or in their close circle of friends, you are their enemy. You need protection. Tor provides some protection.

        That was a good example where Tor becomes necessary. We're not at the point where one can get away with questioning Jewish authority. So to stay alive and fight and wake the public up from their sleep, it is very important to take steps that provide at least some protection from these criminals.

        In other words: It was a use-case scenario.

      Terrorists - does not scapegoat by racial identification.
      Pedophiles - does not scapegoat by racial identification.
      Junkies - does not scapegoat by racial identification.
      Jews - the word you added - scapegoats by racial identification.

      This is the very definition of racism.

      To be a (true) terrorist you have to take evil action.
      To be a (true) pedophile you have to take evil action.
      To be a junkie you normally have to do it to yourself by taking stupid action.
      To be a Jew, all you have to be is born to a class of parents who were in turn born to that class of parents, and so on.

      You are a disgusting and revolting human being. Also a mind-blowingly stupid human being.

        Try this yourself to get closer to the truth:

        Question the Jews' motives. Question their religious laws and teachings about gentiles. Be critical of any openly known jew. Support Palestine and question the legitimacy of Jews driving Palestinians off their land. Connect your comments to your pseudo-name. After that, your pseudo-name will be attacked and character-assassinated systematically. You will be named as "so and so username"-like idiots inhabit this place; with people like him around this place smells. Or something like that. They will label you an insane person (among other things).

        You need to be at the receiving end of their wrath once to start waking up and seeing your true enemy in the eye. Once your eyes are opened, you will try to help others to spot jews. As the old saying goes (sad as it is): "There is no such thing as a good jew"

        By the way, Jew is a race. I am not sure what you mean by class.

            What an insightful comment you made! Instead of listening if there is something of value being said, you ask people to jump off the roof. What a nice person you are. I'm sure people really like being your friend. One day you will ask each one of them to jump off the roof when there is an argument. That is the kind of person you are. Vile, full of hate.

            What do you mean by "us all"? Who else are you speaking for?

            Or maybe you are a Jew. If yes, then please tell why Jews were expelled from cities and entire countries 109 times or so in the last few hundred years?

      So you are basically complaining that you got a Troll moderation instead of a Flamebait moderation?

        Everyone is being monitored by the authorities. Anyone who touches TOR, by their logic, must have something very bad to hide. Get yourself higher up their priority list and you can be sure they'll look much harder for even relatively minor evidence of potential thought crime with which to accuse you. They'll look harder at everything. Anything to get you for something in the name of safety. Better not make any minor mistakes on your tax return, for example. What a terrible work we have created for ourselves.

    The same reason I refuse to save money with loyalty cards--some of us think corporate and government stalking is just creepy.
