Then leave governments out of it, and re-phrase the question in this
way.  If one can not run one's own DNS server on the public Internet,
but must rely on a DNS service supplier for your DNS, and at some point
you start to wonder about the technical competence or correct configura-
tion of the DNS service supplier whose DNS you are configured to use,
and all other DNS servers out there are configured to refuse recursive
service except perhaps to their own population, than against what can
you compare the DNS service that you are getting, to see whether it is
giving you what "the world" should be seeing?
