I've often wondered how Tor could really be effective at thwarting
censorship attempts by a government such as China's. Tor needs access
to Tor servers, a list of which are publicly available, as they must
be, or else one's local Tor client wouldn't be able to find them. It
would therefore seem trivial for an interested government to simply
block them at its firewall. I suppose a secret list of Tor entry
points could be maintained, but that would hugely complicate Tor usage.
