Guardrails don’t restrict us from having fun. They keep us from making decisions that would mess up our futures.

But without guardrails, we are now facing the largest opioid crisis in human history, fake news and climate change.
That’s because we made decisions that didn’t have the future in mind. Perhaps, we didn’t know then but we do know better now.
