"[W]e can be optimistic about what happened because we know how the story played out. We ended up calling the era 'industrialization' and 'urbanization.' But imagine for a moment if we called it 'post-agriculturalization,' instead. That is, imagine if we named the era for the old thing that was passing away, rather than for the new thing that was born. That would signal chaos, uncertainty, nostalgia, and decline. What many Americans are experiencing today is probably best captured by 'post-industrialization.'"
