It's a matter of terminology. I hope we all (subscribers of this list)
can agree on some technical goals such as anonymity, untraceability,
privacy, access to blocked sites. This is relevant for design of Tor,
its operation, configuration of Tor, Privoxy etc. Call it political or
OTOH discussions about government, is it totalitarian or is it behind
some journalist murders etc., are very flammable and adds _nothing_
valuable to technical side.
If you have better term for this instead of 'political' please
propose. Maybe 'non-technical'?
