Perhaps activism shouldn't be mentioned regarding legal issues. "Activism" in context of computers has much to do with "Distributed Denial of Servic", "Guerilla Open Access Manifesto" and some kind of hacktivism even is considered as being an issue for free journalism.

The averaged hacktivist doesn't need hints and the best hint for unexperienced computer users such as journalists, is not to use a computer for journalism at all and not to own a mobile or tablet PC.

It might be useful to clarify some issues with browsers, e.g. problems with auto-completion of search engines, safe browsing, but also when a sandbox is useful or not. Why wrong usage of encryption and signing is more dangerous, then being aware that data isn't safe. Even the man page of "shred" informs that the default file system used by Ubuntu Studio renders "shred" useless. Enabling popcon and stuf like this shouldn't be done.

A high level of security and a user-friendly OOTB average desktop experience are mutually exclusive.
