It's not Julien Assange, or blackhat on the run from the feds level security. For that you have dee.su live o/s or your own custom build, tunneling Tor through a mixmaster network like Jondonym to prevent easy traffic analysis and bitmessage or Nym servers with PGP for emails. In fact you probably would'nt even be using Xorg and all it's attack variables you would be using tmux shells w/lynx and running Tor in a chroot, using virtualized routing tables and behind a pf firewall. You would also be wearing a Roy Orbison wig and sunglasses everytime you moved your safehouse from one location to the next, and never use anything except hacked wireless for a one time connection nowhere near where you live or cameras.
In general it's poor form to assume readers know anything - consider (for example) a future lay-reader who is trying to find out this information.
The advice on how to protect yourself from being spied on is essentially:
"stop using the internet; or use HTTPS - which is probably compromised anyway; or encrypt - which is probably compromised anyway; or use a VPN - which I will say next to nothing about"
It's just a rehash of points and opinions already better expressed elsewhere.
