There is an old adage that to conquer a people.. divide them. I truly believe that and Entrepreneurial spirit will do wonders to solve many problems, I do feel that there really should be more opportunities for individuals to engage and get together to solve and change existing issues.
I think there is a deliberate separation due to a general lack of creativity. As if the only solution is to take money away from people with money to spread it around. I am quite certain that if the right people came together and were extended resources and support any problem could be solved.
