No they are not mine. They belong to the people who the US

My feelings about tor are the logical result of basic moral
principles, reasoning and bla bla bla.
I am not a 10 year old girl having a fit about dressing.
And actually I'd expect 10 year old kids to be smarter about

Tor is criminal garbage created by the pentagon to serve their
ends. It would be very weird for a libertarian anarchist(your
caee I think?) to believe otherwise.

If anything the people driven by feelings, not logic and
evidence, are the tor supporters.
