If you haven't discovered him already, take a look at the work of Prof. Jordan Peterson. This man is brilliant - just watch a few of his video talks. I have written about him before and his thoughts on freedom of speech.

There are not many people who excite me with the originality of their thinking and their passion - Jordan is one of them - though he gets a tad too intense at times.

These are just a little of his thoughts on changing the world - watch the video to learn more.
The proper strategy for implementing social change is to stay within your domain of competence and that requires humility which is a virtue which is never promoted in modern culture.

I would say it's a virtue that you can hardly even talk about.

But humility means you are probably not as smart as you think you are and you should be careful.

So then the question might be, well okay, you should be careful, but perhaps you still want to do good, you want to make some positive changes.

How can you be careful and do good?

Then I would say you try not to step out of the boundaries of your competence and you start small.

And you start with things that you actually could adjust.
