So you are a few steps closer to the truth than what Tor related activity I see online. Yes, Cloudflare is not a person. And *it* is not out to get precisely you as *it* sees the people as connections.

Meaning Tor users are already favored.

Given how much Tor users pay they are already doing much.

As for better, that is just an emotional term used by the loud activists. Better for them would be shut down Tor access the same way they close some access from other dubious parts of the net. Better for Greenpeace would mean send them more money to take photos with the polar bears. Better can mean almost 50% of the possible meanings and that varies from person to person.
