In my opinion, the advantage belongs to Wicd, unless you want to run
a VPN.

I swear never to be silent whenever and wherever human lives endure
suffering and humiliation.  We must always take sides.  Neutrality
helps the oppressor, never the victim.  Silence encourages the
tormentor, never the tormented.  Sometimes we must interfere when
human lives are endangered.  When human dignity is in jeopardy, that
place, at that moment, must become the center of the universe.
