Actually, it's really simple to stop spam.  Simple, not easy.

You just need to delegate responsibility along with authority when
handing out netblocks, registering domain names, and the like.

Today, this is being done in theory but not in practice, and I ascribe
the worst of today's net's ills to the responsibility/authority
mismatch.  But, of course, it can't work without the will to enforce it
at the top of the pyramid, and I see no sign of any there now.
