I say let'em have it. Split the root and let the commies have their own Internet. It's inevitable anyway and could possibly curtail much of the online crap that comes out of Russia/Asia. I think it's pretty obvious now that the Internet will not "set oppressed peoples free", and in fact can get them oppressed even further, so what's the point in "one Internet"?
In addition it would open up huge new job sectors for their developing economies.
