As of 2020_05_30 the state of this chapter here is that a lot of references to various projects are not even present in this wiki, because it's just that exhausting work to note them all down here, which is a Good Thing, because it shows that at least some people on planet Earth care about free exchange of ideas and free speech. The references that are here, have NOT been all systemized yet. Again, it is a Good Thing that there are so many projects that try to enforce the free exchange of knowledge. The overall summary so far (2020_05_30) is that overlay networks like the Tor can work, but they work only as long as its traffic is not blocked at the underlying network, and the various wireless (WiFi, BlueTooth, etc.) networks are usually detectable, jammable, physically destroyable by censors/adversarial_security_services, but building clandestine custom physical networks seems to be the only thing that works. Alternatives to WiFi and BlueTooth might be optical links combined with cables between neighboring houses. Optical links won't work during fog, snowfall, rain. The optical links have to emit  relatively low intensity light to avoid being detected. No fancy laser shows.
