It does exist it is called Open Source where the citizens local up share data to fact check and become informed of and on a variety of issues to become part of the local solutions to be applied. Also monitoring the up down configuration and interaction so that people can work at there own level of learning and resources. The middle created to improve filtering or bridge gaps in communication or learning.

We have big challenges attempting to keep communications interactive and on an open forum.

The internet was intended to be used in a free form to not limit our interactions or our capabilities of the variable connections. The individualized programming leaving the user the choice of opting in or out of the sharing process or managing the time of interaction. This was user friendly and was moving away from the redundancy of the old systems.

We have to keep finding new forums to use as the up down is attempting to be sole editor and adviser of the information or data shared. When opting out we move to our local forum of person to person contact so we will not lose the ability to connect. This is usually limited to when technology fails or interrupted. We use various forms of communication to keep this going.
