How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Musicians nowadays have lots more opportunities to achieve great results, it's nothing like when I started where everything was harder from finding material to practicing and even connecting with other musicians! Many people improved at light speed, informations are available to everyone now. The way of expressions also have no more boundaries, and musicians are free to express themselves more than ever. Problems come from where the money are within the industry and what makes the money move: that seems to me nowadays the only major impediment for the musicians all over the world who are becoming too much clerks of the music. One should say something only because and when he feels like he should, not because of a deadline, or a bill to pay, but I guess that's just the last act of something that dates back a while ago. It's part of the cons that comes with the pros I mentioned earlier.
