US govt mulls snatching back full control of the internet's domain name and IP address admin

those questions expose the fact that the internet isn't quite the free for all we all expect and hope it is.

What happens if the US take back control?

Nations have already started to produce their own GPS systems so as not to be reliant on the US, maybe similar action is needed for internet connectivity?

Maybe time for IPv8 that has extensions for a free and open internet not reliant on a centrally controlled numbering and naming system?
