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.

@MistressEmelia
China, Russia, and India are all on the UN Security council. You'll forgive me for thinking UN control of the Internet could only make it worse.

That said, the tech is open; they're welcome to offer a competing network or national networks; Russia and others seem keen to try it.

@cykros it may not be ideal, but I only know of the UN as being stateless, I don't know of another way to make something not controlled by any single state.
