voting only changes something when the electorate is educated and voters take their voting duty seriously
A good first step towards achieving this is ensuring that higher education is available for everyone with the required aptitude in a society.

When Carly was CEO at HP, she had a 4 million dollar salary and at some point she gave herself a 16 million dollar bonus for saving lots of money (almost all HP employees waived 1 day's worth of salary at Carly's request just a few month's before she gave herself that bonus).
