In the discussion on distirbution vs centralization this article might
be of interest:

https://policyreview.info/articles/analysis/myth-decentralised-internet

Abstract
In popular culture, and in policy discussions, the internet is often
conceived of as a decentralised technology, which cannot be controlled.
Drawing from research into internet infrastructure, focusing on the
Border Gateway Protocol, I show that the internet has never been, and
never can be, decentralised. I argue that the internet is better viewed
as being distributed, both in terms of technologies and governance
arrangements. The shift in perspective, from decentralised to
distributed, is essential to understand the past and present internet,
and to imagine possible future internets which preserve and support the
public good.

RFC8280 proposes:

   Decentralized:  Implementation or deployment of standards, protocols,
      or systems without one single point of control.

Best,

Niels
