Nothing, except

other individuals and a well informed, active and involved public. Without that, the cycle will repeat itself indefinitely. If the public does not understand the consequences of empowering its politicians, then the cause is lost at that particular point in time. There is no quick fix and there is no permanent fix (that I'm aware of). There is no law that can't be overturned by the people or ignored by the politicians, so we can forget about trying that. Educate yourself and those around you and never stop. Vote for those who "get it" and hold them accountable.
