Much appreciated, Tavian - and I fully agree that something radically different is what is needed.
The primary reason being that our most dominant institutions, and all the ways that people think that direct them to support these institutions, are self-preserving in ways that often go beyond the realm of conscious consideration. This means that people don't usually know they are doing it.
Consider something like Orwell's Newspeak, a heavily controlled language that people not only speak to each other in, but also "think through", designed to make sure they can't consider certain concepts and, more crucially, can not transcend their own thinking.
Until we get to the philosophical, linguistic roots of our thinking to clear out all of the tribal, divisionary, self-restricting noise that we've indoctrinated ourselves into, I suspect there will be no significant change. There will be the appearance of change, or at least stepping the right direction, but we'll never be able to address and overcome the limits we place on ourselves as a species due to the shortcomings and restrictions of our own thinking.
I'm confident that this is central to why people - both individuals and the species as a whole - just keep cycling through the same/similar mistakes time and time again, and are seemingly unable (or incapable) of extracting the necessary wisdom to overcome these things.
Some things, we have to go through to overcome. We've gone through such a great deal and have a huge stock of insights that, if applied to how people live, could serve as the basis for new personal and social strengths that will benefit us for the rest of our lives.
