Perhaps if "Tor exit node" were called "Tor exit Router",
politicians/policemen would have a better understanding that this
service provides no indexing of data, no storage of data and is just a
networking service that is agnostic to whatever data flows through it.

If they declare illegal any part of the internet which makes police
investigations hard  due to lack of traceability/logs  then they can go
after any NAT router, Tor exit nodes, VPN servers etc.
