future: the good ancestor principal

i think i want to be a futurist now...

The "Good Ancestor Principle" is based on a challenge posed by Jonas Salk:
...the most important question we must ask ourselves is, “Are we being good ancestors?” Given the rapidly changing discoveries and conditions of the times, this opens up a crucial conversation – just what will it take for our descendants to look back at our decisions today and judge us good ancestors?

These are very good things to think about. It would be great to incorporate that in a card or something in the future vid.
