In my opinion, each vote should have the same value. That will place everyone on equal footing. As it is now, where vote value is relative to your "wealth", it's a system designed to benefit the rich.
It's the same with flagging. Flag strength is relative to wealth. So it's pointless for guys like me to flag the "rich". My flag will serve no purpose other than to piss off some rich user who can then turn around and destroy me.
As long as the system gives power only to the rich, only the rich can sort out the issues here.
