It was recently said, "It suddenly occurs to me. ICANN is forever. ICANN *is* the Government of the Internet. How do I know? ICANN has managed to create a fully functioning Government with all the time-honored features of same:

Layers of impenetrable beaurocracy;
A catchy yet meaningless mandate;
Deep-pocketed vested interests;
A deeply cynical participatory model;
A puppet judiciary;
and a "loyal" opposition.

No doubt in a hundred years a noble creation myth will have been
invented, with all evidence to the contrary buried on orphaned media.
