    But Constitution and checks and balances are there to prevent it from happening, no?

      @gigi Sadly, constitutional checks and balances only prevent usurpation of power directly.. they cannot prevent apathy from the people.

      When apathy occurs, it leaves the people in power solely responsible for making decisions. regardless of what branch they operate in, they become corrupt as there is no input from the people and therefore no accountability.
