    Only our Creator can do that. The bible tells us that this is part of His Kingdom rule to eliminate all corruption.

    (Psalm 37:10-13) 10 And just a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no more; And you will certainly give attention to his place, and he will not be. 11 But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, And they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. ז [Za′yin] 12 The wicked one is plotting against the righteous one, And at him he is grinding his teeth. 13 Jehovah himself will laugh at him, For he certainly sees that his day will come.

    (Psalm 37:37-38) 37 Watch the blameless one and keep the upright one in sight, For the future of [that] man will be peaceful. 38 But the transgressors themselves will certainly be annihilated together; The future of wicked people will indeed be cut off.

    (Daniel 2:44) 44 “And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. And the kingdom itself will not be passed on to any other people. It will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, and it itself will stand to times indefinite. . .

    (1 Corinthians 6:9-10) 9 What! Do YOU not know that unrighteous persons will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men, 10 nor thieves, nor greedy persons, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit God’s kingdom.

    (2 Timothy 3:1-5) 3 But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, 3 having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, 4 betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn awa. . .

    (Revelation 21:1-4) 21 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 I saw also the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

    That is when all corruption will be gone.

    Deuteronomy 8:11-19, Deuteronomy 28, Job 8:13, Psalm 9:17 and Romans 13 says they are all Accountable to God for either good or bad. It is your job to recognize corruption, tell them about it. If they choose to ignore it make sure you pray for those who have the rule over you and God will fix it for them.

    Not as long as materialism is the god of the masses. It is the greed to accumulate material wealth, our over consumption that drives the corruption.

    We need a new kind of education which teaches us as individuals and as societies to serve humanity and in which science is developed to work in service to humanity rather than to corporations.

    No, that is why we need God's Kingdom. The only righteous authority. Goes back to the reason the world is in the predicament it's in. Need to establish the fact that humans can't rule themselves and that we need God.
