Indeed it is easier to make it work the other way, but problem is that even if 
I kinda trust my VPN provider, who claims not to keep connection logs, I don't 
like to have my connection go through 1 spot in 1 country (you can create 
multiple openvpn.conf file, but this is not very convenient to use). I guess 
this is irrelevant to look for anonymity with this bottle neck effect. When I 
purchased a VPN subscription, I saw it as a way to improve anonymity, now I 
feel it is more a tool to provide security.

This is also why I put Tor browser as the #1 service to provide anonymity, 
because even if nodes exit might be observed, you still have possibilities to 
improve this aspect setting up bridges, besides Tor was created by the US Navy 
Research Laboratory, it is not a big surprise to me that the US were involved 
in this project. When you're talking about defense of freedom, how could one 
not show great admiration and love for the US. I know you have people to talk 
shit about US policies, that the US fucked up in Vietnam or Irak, but where 
would be Europe at right now if no young heroic US soldiers to sacrifice their 
lives to defend freedom and help beating nazi rats ? When I see rise of 
nationalism once again in Europe, I am just so ashamed. They don't know what's 
memory, what's bravery. They want another bloody tyrant on one continent in the 
future, they want the end of time ? Fuck this. Welcome the refugees, stop

Ok thank you, I'll find out what I can do setting up Whonix. Maybe this will 
fix my issue https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Bridges#How_to_use_bridges_in_Whonix
