In Buddhist terms, you're speaking about the 3 poisons of Greed, Anger and Ignorance.
As I see it, there are 3 broad options.
The first one is to say F... It and join in to get your slice of the pie and to hell with the consequences.
The second is another revolution.
The third is to force Government to put the welfare of human beings over profit by voting out people who don't put people first.
Options 2 & 3 require people to join together with a common aim and so are very tough to implement. In the 19th and early 20th century, it was the unions who forced through changes like child labor laws, work place safety, 5 day work week, 8 hour work day, etc.
So, it is possible but requires people to get off their butts and take action.
