One correct way of initializing and running the AF/HC would be as follows:
1. Select a 12 persons Initialization Committee that would then select a 12 persons Selection Committee.
2. The Selection Committee would then select a 12 person Decision Jury.
3. The Decision Jury would then be charged with voting on the acceptance of an application.
4. The Decision Jury can call for any information that they may require in order to be able to make that which one may call intelligent decisions.
5. A given Jury can make more than one decision during it's term of service. The decisions do not always have to be on the same jury. Even a king may enjoy making a common man decision once in a while and voting on it.
6. Because the Decision Jury will not be making decisions that can not be over turned in the light of newer or better information, a 2/3 majority will be sufficient in order to put an application through the application process.
7. It is not the job of the Decision Jury to make decisions about market flooding.
8. Preliminary and partial permissions that can be expanded later can also be used. That will allow a step by step build up of more complicated projects that contain a larger number of new aspects.
9. Any initial differences of opinion between the Initialization Committee, Selection Committee and the Decision Jury can be qualified with a 2/3 majority vote by all 36 members of those groups together.
10. After the members of the Decision Jury have served their term, they can choose to follow the progress of their decisions by placing documentation of their own observations in the INBOX of the AF or HC. That means that they will have email addresses at those places so that they will be in a conference type community. It would probably not be correct to think that persons will wake up every day and look for news where there may never be any. That means that for Selection Committee, Initialization Committee and Decision Jury members, the AF/HC may need to override certain private persons that have placed their programs in the "auto start" or "startup" directories of personal computers or used other means to give themselves a precedence before others.
11. Decision Jury members will not make more decisions in their active term than they can later follow when they are doing it as an hobby. An initial number can be defined to be anywhere between 1 and 7, depending on each persons willingness. Consent to be on a jury implies that a person is already willing to make at least one decision.
12. In the AF/HC environment no one can be expected to do things that are related to others for free, just because they like doing it or because it is their hobby.
13. If a Decision Jury decides that there is reason to reconsider something, the need can be passed on to the Selection Committee, who can then select 12 new Decision Jury members in order to consider the new aspects and or the complete project.
14. Because each 36 members of the group will have to be replenished regularly, the Initialization Committee can come from places that they entered through a previous voting procedure. They will then have the job of finding 12 member Selection Committees who then have to find 12 member Decision Juries. In this system, voluntary service is the key. The luck of the draw from valid cross sections are the key words here. In this system, no attempt will be made to define who is good and who is bad.
15. Ways will have to found that allow a good cross section of a countries population to be part of the decision making. These committees are not watch dogs, because things that are being voted on belong to other persons. Owners will still have to answer in the usual ways for the things that they do on a day to day basis.
16. Overloading jury members with too much information may hamper the system. On the other hand, if they need more information it should, where possible, be made available.
17. Among the jobs that jury members will have are: Check that user instructions are sufficient. Check that operating safety and environment are up to standard. Check if product modifications that affect customers are being made after the fact. Check if there are any direct or indirect monopolies that are not based on valid patent registrations. Check, if there are any unwanted frequencies occur in specific areas etc. In order to do that effectively, jury members should have a connection to the outside world so that the rest of the world can pass on information to them about where they think something is wrong or about to go wrong. If a jury that is required, no longer exist, a new one will be called into being in order to deal with the problem.
18. If the AF/HC withdraws complete financial support for a particular product, that product will no longer be allowed to be a commercial good. That action does not affect goods that exist without registration at the AF/HC. Other means must be used in order to solve that problem. That means that the AF/HC will not affect anything prior to it coming into being, unless those owners join it. Modifications that are not related to safety will not affect previous versions of objects, agreements and procedures. Goods do not carry markings that indicate membership in the AF/HC, but if asked, producers can give information that allow customers to check, if they are present in the AF/HC list. Membership in the AF/HC can not be transferred or attached.
19. Membership in the AF/HC does not guarantee a customer anything, that remains the job of producers, but it can provide a low level basis for customer decision making.
20. Gender representation within the a 36 member group can be between 0% and 51%. Think of situations close to home.
21. Laws will be dealt with where they have always been dealt with. In this system, we just want to know, if something can be done safely and if a large enough portion of the population may need or want it.
22. The threshold for "need" will be set lower than the threshold for "want".
23. For the process of understanding, it is recommended here that words and terms used in correspondence be of the same type as that used in applications. That means that if vocabulary and sentence construction types that originate from other subject matter is in the correspondence, they should have good and valid reasons for being there. Where necessary, ambiguity and other generalized constructs may need to be explained by the constructor of such sentences. The use of common names that most people will be able to recognize or find the meaning thereof should take precedence over names that require special knowledge or even another language. That means that the persons that are going to buy and use what ever the application encompasses must be able to find out what an applicant and the decision making committees talked or are talking about.
24. Because a 12 person Jury selection will be done by selecting from a group of more than 12 persons, it would be wise to give persons that were not selected in a first round a second and or even a third chance so that it will be perfectly clear that personal preferences are not part of the system.
25. Persons that make up a country usually split themselves up into groups that are often call classes. The problem however, is that those classes are not the same for all countries. It will therefore be left up to each country to decide how they fit those classes into 12 persons so that no one will have a reason not to feel included or represented in a low level system as the one being described here.
26. For the Selection Committee the class system that is used in schools can be a starting point, but there is no reason why the Decision Juries should always be the same, because that might drive the system into the wall. This is interesting problem, which each country will have to solve of their own free will.
27. Because all persons will not always want to make 7 decisions, before they leave active service on the Decision Jury, there will be rotation within a set Decision Jury period, but there will still be those persons available who did not make it through the "random selector" the first time.
28. The Decision Jury and Selection Committee must always hold the 2/3 majority over the professional decision makers in the Initialization Committee. In particular, because of the amount of time that such persons may have available, it may from time to time be easy for them to over estimate themselves and or practice agenda attachment. They are also sometimes prone to all or nothing decision making. The reasons why will not be discussed here. The 2/3 majority specified here can therefore not be re-constituted or reshuffled. Multiple service on more than one type of committee is not allowed.
29. Both the the AF and HC will have there own groups as described above. They can communicate with each other. The AF may want to use a different system of personnel selection and amounts, but they will come from the from the AF/HC member countries. A course for all committee members on how to write so that it can be understood by all will also be required. That means that the number of times that the committees meet will depend on the "need" more than the "want".
