If you have not already, check out the book "Republic; Lost - How money corrupts Congress and a plan to stop it" by Lawrence Lessig. It is a very recent book by a Harvard Law Professor. I think he correctly diagnoses the problem and offers several potential solutions. He admits that the likelihood of any of them actually coming to pass is slim, but he likens the fight to one that a parent would do for a child with cancer. I don't think you will be disappointed.

It's on my reading list. I didn't realize it was going to be depressing though! Slim to none?! Can you give me a brief preview of his potential solutions?

""NATO is staging "Massacre of Christians in Syria by Muslims", by bringing Al Qaida and other radical Islamists to Syria, in order to initiate a war, where they can nuke Iran, give a lesson to rising China, control Middle East oil resources, and allow some people to print as much money as they wish by using petrodollars, so they can control the society and the world through their wealth and power. This will also allow capitalism to continue by breaking the Eastern and the Socialist spirituality which is growing around the world and which is the biggest threat to capitalist ruling elite. ""
