Centralization itself isnt broken.  But when centralization becomes a
monopoly, then it limits end user choice.  Case in point, it's $25,000 to
be in the FIDO working group, and $50,000 for voting rights.

This will eliminate much of the grass roots and tends to lead to syndicates
and cartels.

Centralization and decentralization working together gives maximum user
choice.
