Who has more power than the government and the corporations combined? The people themselves...but that power is dwindling because we keep giving more and more of it to the government.
Well, the government is to represent the people, and be made up of the people etc. Thus the only way for people get such large scale things done is via the government. Give corporations LESS influence in government, and the problem would be somewhat alleviated. Although I would accept those with intellect and money will probably always have proportionally more influence, it should be minimized somewhat.
If you suggest individuals create and enforce such regulations, you end up with a regulatory nightmare completely non-conductive to business, on par with the infamous License Raj.
