Privacy and the Tor network

I don’t use TOR.  I can’t see a reason for doing so, since I believe there is no hiding place on the Internet.  If someone wants to hide there, they’ve had it.  Agencies around the world, with enough tech savvy, highly skilled people, unlimited budgets and political muscle are going to find you.  It may take a little time, but the outcome is certain.

Which begs the question, is anywhere truly private?  Are you private in your own home?  I work on the assumption that no matter what I do, I can be watched.  Privacy and security are matters that begin with taking personal responsibility.

I wish societies had developed so that privacy was sacrosanct.  They haven’t.

Below is the release from Europol regarding the take down of sites.
