I feel like there needs to be a concerted push to move all internet infrastructure into the control of the hands of the United Nations — currently the US controls too much.
Organisations such as IANA and ICANN are based in the US, which means they could see pressure to force domain registrars to comply with US laws. This is greatly worrying.
I don't have the political chops to push for this, but I'd happily sign any campaign.
pls not! infrastucture should be controled by it's users, not by some constructed entity having the authority to rule over others.
apolish nationalism. They are a threat to humanity. And yes, the UN is part in facilitating it.
@paulfree14 well, put it this way: the UN is a shitload better to control these organisations than the US. That is, these organisations should be stateless.
I'm not to deep into this topic, but just wanting to give an idea of existing projects that try to build a web controled by it's user.
OpenNIC is a user-owned and -controlled top-level Network Information Center that offers a non-national alternative to traditional Top-Level Domain (TLD) registries such as #ICANN.
