How do we break out?

It seems to me that most so-called innovation is entrenched firmly in existing paradigm.

What do you all think - how can we mere mortals do more to make our world more open to truly new ideas that might radically improve life on this planet? How can we facilitate, on a local level, a kind of letting go? It seems to me that the biggest obstacle to innovation is not the lack of new ideas, but our ego-based attachment to our prejudices, archaic beliefs and comfort zones. So how do you all feel we can best liberate ourselves and one another to make way for the new?
