"What do we know about Homo Sapiens behavior...?"
There's a huge disparity in not only the income of the top and the bottom of society, but in the dispersal of knowledge too. All Homo Sapiens distinctively acknowledge their emotional awareness, but only a minute percentage spend enough introspection to understand the Why of their situation. This is exactly how we arrived at the state of affairs we exist in today. Prisoners to emotions that very few Homo Sapiens truly understand, or have the capacity to manage. The injustices surrounding us today are not a grand master plan handed down from generation to generation via some secret code. The few represents those with some level of emotional intelligence taking advantage of the many, who in most respects, are the emotional helpless. Closing these gaps in EI and income can only happen by building a better foundation. Emotional prisoners are not the support mechanism for real transformational change. They spend far too much energy regulating their status, by gossiping about why they don't have it better than they do. What's needed is a Super Generation of Homo Sapiens armed with a childhood developmental trajectory, that allows them the capacity to overcome what all previous generations have failed at. Spreading knowledge and understanding much more evenly across the entire species. Only then can we close the gaps of inequality within cultural flaws and socioeconomic disparities.

Communities must be involved in the development of ALL of their children. Not simply the higher ranking, or athletically inclined. Third party involvement, such as church and state fail to override their conflicts of interest when it comes to choosing between the individuals and the institutions. Institutional oversight always skews toward favoritism of small pockets of power and special interest., leaving their supporters grappling for a connection to that elusive control. This is precisely why volunteering the resources to the needs helps bind to the idea of the outcomes. We all work harder whenever we recognize we're working together for a greater good. No power needed to direct individuals who care about what they're accomplishing. The problem with the present volunteer mechanism are that they are extremely fragmented, due to their institutional statuses. It's not that they do harm, they just don't solve the problems they're fighting. Childhood development simply doesn't stand out as a priority, and thus the subsequent adults that children become, lack the tools necessary for participating in creating solutions. This ill aimed pursuit of help, continually cycles along without fixing the core issues.
