Ideological Divergence/Equitable Devlopment; Stanford sup/;Most significant challenge

Hello Everyone !

This is my answer to one of the Stanford Supplement Questions :

What is the most significant challenge that society faces today?
(I wouldn't call it an essay; since the answer is limited to 300 characters. But, the problem is that I've had to ideas; and I just can't make up my mind about which one to pick.

If you could tell me what you think; I would appreciate it a lot :

- Challenge : ideological divergence

Each person starts building her own perception of the world; afar of any universal logic, and any bipolar political principal. But, the problem is that this "mental uprising" has pros and cons. And, the cons make this ideological divergence between components of each society a real challenge to face

- Challenge : equitable development :

To me, it is to ensure an equitable global development of the world, so that everyone gets an equal access to education, healthcare, and basic life tools because nowadays, we live in a world in which rich people keep getting richer, poor people poorer, and the gap between those deeper.

Thanks a lot.

what are the cons of the mental uprising?

the second one is good. but how about saying the gap gets wider? it just seems like a more appropriate word.
