That's why apps such as DNS66 (available on F-droid) are a good solution, without resorting to root or something more convoluted.

This doesn't excuse Microsoft from being the evil lizard people form the center of the Earth. This just tell you they are more dumb than evil, given the lousy development/programming ethics they embrace. Half their vulnerabilities rise from outdated IDEs, outdated/vulnerable libraries, non-corrected programming issues and other stuff.
Back in the day we finished a Windows PlateSpin migration with ~20 thumbdrives and one (large at the time) 240GB carry disk HDD. They were shipped in a single box via UPS from Atlanta to Rochester because the white collars didn't want to pay the extra cash for a decent network link.
When one of the folks went to the DC door to pick them up and got up to our war room, we all heard he dropped something as he crossed the door. A good ~45 seconds of silence followed, until he picked up the power source for the arcane external disk enclosure and said "Now I'm worth 16 million dollars, eh?" as that was the price of the migration/hosting contract.
I have been using dns66 for over a year now. Works great, and you can customize the block/exclusion list, or even add your own DNS servers. The only thing missing from it it's secure connection to DNS servers over HTTPS/TLS. Last time I checked there were a few folks on Github asking the developer to implement it.
Argentinian here. This move on the US ship isn't so much about empowering the military as it is about paying an obscene amount of money for something the Yankees do not need anymore. Rest assured some local official will get a succulent chop of the deal for "facilitating" it.
Also, the Cuban infiltration stuff is nonsensical. The actual government is using the police and other Homeland security forces to try to stop the manifestations demanding to know the whereabouts of those who got disappeared by the police and those other Homeland security forces.
