Ending Hierachies in the arts, medical, political spectrums and more

We all watch, as huge talent bases, do not get the "connections or resources afforded a few”, in the art world, and especially in the film and television, talent monopolies exist. This feudal hierarchy, of experts extends to the worlds of medicine, political funding, military and industrial spending and waste, corruption in all areas. How can the internet using open sourcing of information, change the way "secrets" and so called expertise, are used to exclude the rest of us from a transparent world, and greater opportunity sharing?
For example I am working to empower new film maker story tellers, using pre visualization software to create a visual presentation of their films, with full lighting, action etc and emotions, equal to the best out there, because of strong story telling. Thus technology can showcase new performance arts, films etc, raise funds and introduce new talents denied access.
Could the same be applied to medical practices, exposing vast amounts of waste and fraud? Political campaign contribution s exposed and reported on by millions, the view is a bottom up, watching and making world of inclusion in the developments in our world in various "quality of life" areas?
