 It seems that we are pushing technology to the point that a breakdown
 to remain anonymous could be our human condition more than a
 technical one.

The human link has probably always been the weakest link in the chain.

 But we have been wrong before in regards to technology. So can we say
 that the anonymity problem in P2P networks is solved?

No, no we can't. As we've discussed, OpenNet is a tradeoff of anonymity
for useability (no need to laboriously find/add friends.) DarkNet too
has similar tradeoffs, to reduce latency and cpu usage. You can always
layer your own measures on top of this, though, to improve things.

I take this to mean encrypting your own stuff before sending it with your own 
keys and making sure only friends you can trust are added to your list in your 
Darknet.
Thank you.
