Think Long-Term

The first one hundred days must address the next one hundred years.
Climate change, energy shortages, massive deficits, economic meltdowns -- such crises trumpet our failure at long-term thinking.  For survival on earth, we need policies directed towards our grandchildren.  We need to hear, resoundingly and often, that fixes for our present crises make sense only if they make the world more inhabitable one hundred years from now.
Our current problems stem from short-term thinking.  The first one hundred days must model a new, more rational conception of the connections between the present and the distant future.
