    "The essence of LAW is that is should apply to everyone."
    This alone would correct 90%, IMO, of the problems. Even if it did not, this is required for any system to work as intended.
    Given the option of our current system, the way it is operating, not the way it was intended to work, I would almost prefer a dictator that enforced his policies on everyone, including himself.

    That would go too far. Dictators often rule with absolute power, making laws without restraint or a (legitimate) legislative process. It would undo much of what most reasonable people would deem fair and necessary.

    Simply put, one of the greatest shortcomings in any society is the failure for all parties to adhere to the rule of law. The parties I refer to are citizens, corporations, and government. If corporations had the same power and influence as citizens (i.e., less than they have now), there would be more justice in this world.
