Best Tor and VPN Alternatives


Hi I am looking for a good alternative solution to Tor and VPN's for my Elementary OS system.

A program that keeps all traffic that goes through my network card anonymous is strongly preferred, but I will take other suggestions as well.

Thanks

i2p looks cool but doesn't look like it will anonymize all traffic, just the things you do while in the browser window. If I wanted to anonymize other types of traffic, I would have to get a separate application.

From what I understand there's no way to be truely anonymous on the Internet. Nation-States Intel agencies pretty much own the Internet and can see everything you do no matter how anonymous you think you are or encryption you use. They have algorithms that can crack any encryption code. TOR as I never trusted because it was made by the u.s. Military is still vulnerable because they can monitor your entrance and exit node. It's designed after an old hacker trick. Hack into one box then another from that box and then another from that box and so on. These hackers would go thru 10-20 or even more computers before attacking their victim yet these hackers were Tracked down. All the best hackers who know encryption and anonymity get caught eventually so that should tell you something.

If you use TOR I read it's better to use TOR Browser with it since its customized to not leave any tracks like most browsers Would with TOR service. I.e. Using a plugin that uses JavaScript or going to a site that uses flash. Both coding will give info on who you are and where you're at. TOR is good to be anonymous from your highschool kid hacker but when it comes to intelligence agencies then there's no true anonymity unless you create your own internet using your own broadband lines. The NSA has a mirror set up at the U.K. Plant where most internet data comes through so they essentially get a copy of everything being done on the net.

I like to think al gore and the other politicians wanted the Internet created just to spy on us.

Im constantly watching YouTube videos regarding being anonymous and it's the same crap. Use TOR and Tails. Use i2p. Use VPN. Setup a proxy. Then I find out these are just a waste of time. Your ISP sees everything you do and hands the logs over to NSA.

If someone knows how to regain our privacy from evil eyes please post how.
