i'm not sure about the specific wording of the title question, but my take is:
i think the only way that change, on a scale that would make a real difference to me, could possibly come about in this world, will require things getting much worse. and that has to happen for many more of the people (primarily in the new/modern/first world) who currently benefit - or perceive themselves as benefitting - from the current order.
every concession made by the powers that be, which may well help some subset of people in the short term, is a pressure release on the overall system system of oppression. making more dramatic change ever less likely.
of course nothing is ever quite that simple, but in the grand scheme of things, i stand by that assessment.
