Guessing that people will say that we need to expose it, fix it, then maintain it. But the maintaining part is the tough one, since the organization performing the "checks" eventually grow bored/complacent and leave/turn to corruption. No? I thought that was human nature. Power corrupts. Least that was what I was taught (not that it's right).
I am personally in favor of making it very bad for them if they want to be corrupted, but very good if they do the right thing. High saleries, good insurance, etc. But if you are found to be taking bribes or sabotaging a negotiation process, you are blacklisted from government jobs, you loose any chance of getting government assistance, your taxes double or triple, etc. Making the positives really high and enticing, but make it so that you simply don't want to fuck the people over.
Maybe not the best ideas, but they are ideas, and that's not something we have a lot of anymore.
As much as I'd love to point out that Russia is a shadow of it's former self, it really has no bearing. This isn't about world war 3 or Russia or any of that. It's about Anonymous, the United States Government, the secrets it holds, and the sleeping people of this nation.
