As opposed to...what, exactly?

A government funded Reddit?

Which government would fund it? How would it be run?

The government could fund educational programs to teach people to think critically about the content they see on the internet, then they wouldn't have to censor it.

The government already provides 12 years of (somewhat) compulsory education.

Critical thinking skills still seem to be a rarity.

That is perhaps not a bad idea.

If not government funded, a non-profit, like c-span.
