As an American with minimal understanding of regional politics, I
found this article about Erdogan's censorship quite enlightening. I'd
suggest it to others as well - h/t @quinnnorton, who is a great person
Everyone Is Getting Turkeyâs Twitter Block Wrong: Turkey isnât trying
to be North Korea, China or Iran; itâs trying to be Azerbaijan
This goes directly to the point you're making about Turkish people's
perception of Tor. It's very important, if possible, that that
perception be corrected.
Thanks much and best of luck to you,
