Citizens can exercise their economic power by patronizing individual businesses and corporations which demonstrate responsible judgment in the types of materials they offer for sale.

Citizens should recognize individual businesses and corporations which exercise sound judgment in the selection of their book, magazine and video tape inventory. Businesses which elect not to produce, or distribute pornography in an effort to uphold or reinforce community standards should be commended. The same logic applies with equal force to radio and television stations which offer pornographic or offensive programming. Citizens can use their economic power by patronizing those businesses and corporations which support a standard of quality in the community. Such patronage and subscription will serve as further evidence to merchants that the local community has set its standard with respect to such material.
