To try and clarify this point, global change must start at the individual level. People are focused on changing a ton of people at once so that they can't see how impossible it is in the first place. Instead, if we all change on an individual level and focus on making the world better in any way we can, change is inevitable. The hard part is getting people to open their minds and want more than constant satisfaction, to the point they are impelled to change their perspective willingly. I personally think this is why psilocybin and other drugs are illegal - they tend to lead to an "awakening" experience among users.
