Instead of focusing on problems focus on solutions that you can be a part of. Corporate power is due to the fact that people have encouraged the idea
that legislators are not regulating businesses enough. But its exactly business regulations that hand over power to exclusive monopolies. When people
are clamoring for corporate regulations, and corporations write the laws through lobbyist campaigns, then obviously the result is going to be even
larger corporations. Its exactly the business regulations everyone clamors for that favor large companies. Small companies and start-ups cannot afford
the lawyers, ridiculously expensive "mandatory safety features", or fines and fees that large companies can afford. Competition in currency is
especially important seeing how the dollar is going to be worthless or nearly worthless ten years from now.
So rather than more regulation in banking, we need the banking sector to be completely deregulated. Banking regulations are why Goldman Sachs exists.
The solution is a free market kept in check by a low-cost framework for lawsuits.
Personally I've found that the Free State Project (www.freestateproject.org) is creating an environment in New Hampshire which is focused on issues
that solve the problems you are ranting about. They are in a major factor in deregulation in the state economy, and of course when the movement grows
to a substantial size they'll be able to help with federal regulations as well.
