Even so, I'm concerned more with the next 5 years than the next 50. While you are implementing your slow paced revolution, the world would be crumbling around your ears.

The core of the procedure is to create a separate world society exclusively made up of informed volunteers - and the number would initially be very small, I expect. So as to minimise the impact on the current world society - so that people in power who're swept up in their own indulgence wouldn't counteract everything. There would be mutually beneficial trade and interaction between the two societies.

The idea is that, eventually, the advantages of the new society would be so obscenely plain - that everyone would want to exist there. This last part, however, could take hundreds of years - though I honestly don't think so.

This sounds a lot like what all those hippies did in the 60's when they went off to start communes and 'change the world.' They didn't succeed.

It's fine wanting to work within the society that exists today, except that it's rotten to the core with more misery and injustice than words can describe.
The world is better now that it has been thousands of years. Perfect? Not even close, but that statement is way over dramatic.

If you think you can "regulate" human behavior successfully without altering the core - then I'd love to hear how you would accomplish that.
We successfully regulated US markets for about 50 years for the most part. It wasn't until we started tearing down regulations enacted during the Great Depression that abuses became widespread and systematic.
