  •  Personally? I think we're on the verge of some (6+ / 0-)

    historical changes.

    If you look at the history of the labor movement of the early 20th century, you'll see a rise of discontent and protest that lasted well over a decade before having an impact. I think we are in the early stages of such a time now. Throw in another financial economic crisis, and we'll have full on revolutionary change in the making. The people supported by, and supporting the old system will be run out of town and thrown out of office.

    In other words, I'm not sure when facing such deep rooted and still very profitable corruption that change can actually happen from within the institutions, but will eventually be forced on the institutions from without. No one can offer up any real solutions to such corruption, the solutions must eventually present themselves.
