I see this sentiment expressed more and more, and I really think this might be one of the most progressive drivers of human progress in the next hundred years.

We know by now that there’s very little new under the sun, but just finally clocking to the idea that we’re tribal, self-obsessed and nostalgic is in itself an incredible achievement. If every generation ever has thought that the world used to be better and that the kids are messed up, and we recognize that, could we think about our present and future actions through the probable lens of history?

I don’t think we’ve ever really tried that before. The sentiment in Hamilton’s History has its eyes on you completely changes how you think about present actions.

It's an opportunity for us to finally think about the long-term consequences of our present and force some important conversations that we’ve too often swept up the rug.

Here’s to a bright future of always getting better.
