    Any such service operating in [nation X], or somewhere that cooperates readily with [nation X's] government, is unavoidably "in an untenable position" regarding demands from [nation X's] government.

    The US has been getting lots of attention about this lately. But is there in fact any place ("nation X") where that assertion is arguably not correct? Most of the exceptions that come to mind involve more incompetence (or chaos) than idealism :(

    The solution, I think, is that such services need to be truly hidden and takedown-resistant.

    That will come in due time, innovation in the privacy and encryption field will be running at a all time high now after the NSA leaks. You can bet someone is coming up with the next TOR as we speak, the problem is are they strong enough not to sell out to the government.
