All warrant-less surveillance that connects what you sound like, look like, like to buy or knows your history is wrong.

If you surveil others, from invasive analytics to connected doorbell cameras to building biometric software, please reconsider.

In 2021, we want to focus on improving some of the very core features of Tails, especially for censorship circumvention.

We want to completely redesign how to start Tor and configure Tor bridges.

This will make it easier for people in countries where accessing Tor is blocked to circumvent censorship. According to data from the Tor project, the top 5 countries by users of Tor bridges are Russia, Iran, the US, Belarus, and China.

This is not to say that all who are de-platformed are the same as Martin Luther King.

But many don't realize just how unpopular King was in his own era.

You can't cast a net that catches only "bad" anti-establishment views without catching some who would advance justice.
