Education, the ballot, civil disobedience.

Come back and read the link later, in a hurry. 

Education: Good and really solid idea, only drawback is that knowledge and all that is connected to it takes time.

Civil Disobedience: How far? 

To be honest - the older I get the less I have a clue about the How.
