Of course you or I, as individuals, sending a letter to third world 
country leaders would likely do nothing.  But wouldn't something like a 
dynamic always improving petition that goes viral and is signed by 
millions of people showing gross comprehensive agreement by everyone on 
the importance of such critical actionable issues (including any other 
points of view, and quantitative measures of consensus of such, if any) 
have a chance of changing the world for the better?

I think 99% of the easily resolvable problems in this world could be 
addressed if we simply had a better ability for large groups of people 
(i.e. everyone) to efficiently communicate concisely and quantitatively 
as a group - to the few people in charge.
