None of these sorts of problems will ever get fixed unless society decides to get back to basics and back to reason and principles. I don't see any evidence of that happening.

The problem isn't with government per se, it's with the typical intellectual.

I'm reminded of a saying, "the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must." Well, "..what they must" is a strong phrase, but you get the idea. The general population isn't bothered about these kind of issues. The best they can do, if they notice an issue, is post their views on internet or express some strong views to their friends. If we need to clean shit, we need to go to the top and change it. Sadly I too don't see this happen anytime soon.
