@ben @sydneyfalk @eldaking Well I mean we already have the internet split across national borders which is probably why 7 was chosen (7 continents). Already we see companies that bow down the authoritarian rule for money have no problem, but protesters are silenced. 2040 may be a real disappointment of the potential of interconnection and the lofty dreams from the early days of the net.
@ben tired: unite everything under bureaucratized, unaccountable hegemony
wired: fragment everything in varying degrees of proprietariness and crony capitalist regulation so that only a tiny inner technocracy of gatekeepers has any remotely easy access to what's going on at any given moment

* all root DNS are under US control (so we can consider non-national control as a US control).
* Australian internet regulation is a bit hard since about a decade too and block some foreign sites.
* Iran have a control of what can go in/out of the country internet connection network.
* French provider patch their DNS to avoid noobs to access some sites too.
