"Debian will not protect you against nation-state adversaries" is a
very useful bit of information for many non-technical activists, which
often leads to the questions:
* "Why?" (what powers can they use to subvert existing protections?)
* "What /does/ protect you?" (what new protections need I put in
place such that those powers cannot subvert them?)
It would be lovely to have the answers nearby.
Feel free to start writing. I challenge you to point to any OS with a
simple, useful, and reliable guide to protect against a determined and
well funded adversary.
