This article would be of more use if there were a lot of better options.

The better option(s) is/are obvious: the Tor Browser.

As it is, I think its better than nothing for the fairly minor price you pay.

No, the point of the article was that VPNs are just "glorified proxies" and they're as worse as your typical ISP, if not more bad.

If VPNs are ineffective why do you even need it in the first place? Just use the Tor Browser.

Pluggable transports and bridges do exactly that, no need for a VPN (which doesn't hide the fact that you're using a VPN if it's a commercial one).
