I'm not sure.  Change at a gross level takes time and sustained effort, from
large groups of people.  I believe that a mailing list can reach, and even
motivate, large groups of people, and can be used as a catalyst for change.

Major changes of the kind you speak of are so vanishingly rare, that it
becomes hard to generalize.  I suspect, however, that it is quite possible.
