Ho yes I remember that now.
The thing is, is that one wants to avoid to be persecuted you have to:
-Avoid electronic money (or at least one that doesn't tie your real name
-Having your name tied to the project it (staying anonymous)
-Having people who don't have a lot to loose (if they can stay anonymous
this isn't a big problem).
-Having a server that won't reveal the ID of the people participating on
the project (Tor or GNUnet only)
There are some projects that exist already on these mesh networks.
The problem will always be money and official crowdfunding systems that
needs to have IDs (which is kinda normal).
