Good Afternoon, rimen
To your observation that "... the state & society is doing the best it can", I'd add, "with the tools we've given it." The 'educate, activate & liberate' trilogy offers a decent place to start doing better, provided the focus of each is to improve those tools.
Of course, improving the tools society uses to govern itself is a massive task. In recent years, I've come to wonder if that task wasn't complicated by Plato. He created an unhealthy perspective by dividing 'the people' into three classes: Lovers of money, lovers of honor, and lovers of knowledge.
The attempt to group people in classes fails to account for the diversity in human attitudes and the effect of maturation on individuals. By dividing his Utopian society into three classes, Plato implies the classes are mutually exclusive. He does not recognize (or fails to acknowledge) that ...
1) Individuals may be members of multiple classes, although in varying degrees, and
2) the extent to which an individual can be said to be a member of any class can vary during the individual's lifetime.
Human qualities are distributed throughout society, but we have no idea in what town, down which street, in which house, is the touch of brilliance that will help us improve the human condition. That touch of brilliance is out there, among the people, probably in multiple places, and possibly smothered by the demands of the existence of those blessed with it. We would do well to devise a practical means of finding those individuals.
