One of the main reasons why so many types of societal dysfunction persist for so long is that our current power structures don’t want change and current societal leadership will do anything to maintain the status quo. Changing dysfunction systems which have been millenia in the forming can’t happen overnight.
Our long term societal change division is about deep exploration of societal imbalances and identifying the root causes, and then putting long term plans in place to address those changes. And by long term, we frequently mean beyond the course of our lives. As an individual these problems frequently seem too daunting to even consider trying to work on, but as part of a global community dedicated to long term change, reasons for optimism exist.
