“Sometimes I dream of social change. I get a streak of faith in Evolution and the good in humanity. I paint a gradual slipping out of the now, to that beautiful then, where there are neither kings, presidents, landlords, national bankers, stockbrokers, railroad magnates, patentright monopolists, or tax and title collectors; where there are no over-stocked markets or hungry children, splendor and misery, waste and need. I am told this is farfetched idealism, to paint this happy, povertyless, crimeless, diseaseless world, and I have been told I ought to be behind bars for it.” ~Voltairine de Cleyre (1866 – 1912), American anarchist writer and feminist

Yes, we have evolved, the world is a safer, and fairer, more opportune place for most of us. At the same time it has always been possible to create a world without waste, misery, hunger… It always will be possible.
What stops us?
All that say it cannot be so, it has always been this way, human greed is part of nature etc. etc. To them I say:
Remember when the world was flat.
