I don't suspect we'd need a central authority for that.  I'm sure it only enough for you traffic to pass with anyones national boundry to be 'at risk' of such things

At the risk of seeming to be a conspiracy theorist, I am worried that
with "Central Authority" we might not have "hijacking" but "rerouting
for inspection and correction".

Somebody should have said:
A democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.

Freedom under a constitutional republic is a well armed lamb contesting
the vote.
