The people could help to design the forums simply by withholding any contributions from those forums which they feel have criteria for participation which are either too restrictive or too permissive.
This change in the way we manage our spectrum resource would make broadcast ads in general less attractive as a means of achieving any change in the behavior of citizens/consumers, and it would provide each of us with new resources to invest in community or personal needs.
So many of our current problems could be reduced or eliminated if only we would give up the notion that government can legitimately initiate the use of force against its own citizens. This includes the forced taking of money that is then distributed to programs that some people may not want to support. The area of campaign finance is unique in that the public funding is entirely derived from a voluntary check-off. Unlike most government programs, no one can claim that they were compelled to support public financing of campaigns with their tax money. What if we gave people this option on all public spending? Those programs which lack popular support would simply not get funded, thus leaving more resources available for programs that do enjoy the support of the people.
