Re: [tor-talk] Why most democratic contries are most active users of TOR... except Russia of course

Well Russia now has Internet censorship which heavy increased number on
Tor users

Also number of Tor users in US increased after Snowden's leaks, because
Tor is not only about censorship, but also about surveillance
Germany and other EU countries has the same picture.

So answering main question, it's because people in these countries are
more informed about Tor (Snowden recommended Tor, in Russia many people
advice to use Tor to bypass censorship) and trying to solve problems
presented in their countries. And because Tor is not blocked here (using
bridges can be sometimes harder for Chinese user than using VPN).
Another reason is because many dictatorships are small and by percentage
of Internet population dictatorships has higher ranks
