Since the Sad Rabies are an outgrowth of the American culture wars, simply tweak the rules about Worldcon locations slightly such that Worldcon cannot return to one particular inhabited continent and associated islands until it has been hosted in at least two of the other three*. Making Worldcon an actual World Con would dilute the effect of any one nation's odd politics.

(I admit this makes underinhabited regions equal weight with Eurasia, home to most people)

* The Americas, Eurasia, Africa and Australia Oceana. I am going to ignore Antarctica because its population is smaller than some Worldcons. Not happy about 'Australia'. Maybe 'the Pacific island nations'? Never mind.
