Hosts would work today.

And I'd see "shadow DNS" as being DNS hosted by registrars and ISPs. I don't see why there'd be such a problem if the US was removed from the Internet. example.co.uk would still survive on the (presumably) UK-based nameserver of authority for that domain. Or do all the domains in the world get served from the US and only the US?

Everyone selling IoT I've seen doesn't use Internet connected devices. They are all private networks, secured and firewalled off. This helps them charge for people administering the devices they've already bought.

And you are assuming real-time updates. As you note, DNS isn't today (because caching). For most cases, it would work like today. My home router doesn't know how to get to the Internet, but doesn't need to. It knows its next hop, and that hop knows the next, until someone finally knows the whole thing. It isn't me, and I don't need to know. That's how DNS works today. I don't ask the authoritative server every time. I don't want that, and they don't want that.

So why are you assuming a replacement that ignores decades of learning and does it in the worst possible manner?

You can't manage it. I was on The Early Internet. You'd be surprised how many people advertised blocks they didn't own, and got away with it because there were so many to choose from, you'd probably not accidentally step on one in use. The locks on advertising addresses to ensure ownership and such came after. With IPv6 and no authority, we'd see people randomly use addresses, without allocation. And it would work pretty well, given the V6 address space.

Do you believe that vigilantism is always wrong?

Vigilantism is necessary, so long as black men date white women.

Thankfully these two were quickly closed as suicides, with little media attention, but suicide is high in black men that date white women.

I'm so glad I moved out of the US. I don't have to worry about my friends or neighbors being lynched here.

And lets take out the BS regarding the DPRK launching a massive attack on the US. If you spent a few minutes contemplating the logistics you would see that this is not valid.

Like reality matters. When I lived in the US, I kept advocating abolishing the military. We don't need it. And people explained how China would invade the day we made that declaration. But none explained how China could get people to the US and secure a beach-head to invade. A few hunters could keep China at bay, given their ability to project strength outside China. But nobody ever thought about the invasion. "What if China teleported 10,000,000 soldiers into the Capital? What would you do then?" As if Chinamen in D.C. was the problem, and teleportation wasn't. If they could do that, why not just teleport a nuke into the capitol building during a joint-session presidential address? It's more important to fear China than have a strong economy.
