Mises.org defeats CensorsSubmitted by ladalang on Sat, 02/27/2010 - 09:10
This is a screenshot of the Tor proxy users, showing people from these countries using the Mises Tor server to bypass Internet censorship in their countries. These numbers are for one 24-hour period. These numbers are for the censorship proxy only.
Tor, created by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, makes it possible for people to browse the web without IP detection and hence without fear from overlords in government. This helps spread information, which might be the most important defense against despotism that the world has today.
Servers must volunteer to be helpful in this regard. Mises.org is such a volunteer - as part of a a commitment to the cause of free speech and free flow of information.
The anonymizing proxy routes the traffic of many thousands of users every day. You can see us in the total rankings (look for MisesDotOrg2) here.
