TOR, the god of anonymity in the Internet


TOR is the acronym for ‘The Onion Router’, a free software developed in the mid-1990s by the US Naval Research Laboratory to establish secure communications between military bases. This browser, which accesses the depth of the Internet, allows the user to dive freely through the depths of the network without a trace.

The so-called Invisible Web is the hidden part of the cybernetic iceberg and covers nothing but the 85% of Internet content. It shows inaccessible information for conventional search engines like Google, Yahoo or Bing on illegal activities of all kinds: terrorism, torture, child pornography, hiring of gunmen, hacking, arms sales, supply of organs, drugs, etc.

Regrettably the content of the depraved TOR, the god of anonymity, is rising to the surface of the Internet or ‘World Wide Web’ for everyone to see. An example is the surprising leaks of Edward Snowden in 2013, who revealed to the world the work of monitoring and spying massively by the NSA and several intelligence agencies. Another case is that of the Swedish non-profit periodic organization WikiLeaks, which publishes on its website confidential information and filtered documents with sensitive content to the public via anonymous sources.

Currently, the latest in social media consist in making viral school violence or death itself in return for some ‘likes’. Last April 14th, a teenager took his own life and recorded it live to share it with his Instagram friends.

It is clear that the Internet has changed the way we manage our privacy and live our own tragedies and others. It is time to block the leaks from the dark depths of the netwrok so that TOR, that anonymous and cruel god, do not rise to surface and take what we still have of humanity.

Dame tres minutos

Hablemos un rato, pensemos en voz alta, sin complejos: dame tres minutos


Tras miles de años de paz y armonía, una guerra entre dos razas desata la desolación en un territorio que quedará yermo. Tras tanto odio, muertes y residuo del poder arcano, surgirá un mal que hará que las razas que viven en Rahaylimu se unan de nuevo para combatirlo.
