Microservices as just small monoliths

I agree. The popularity of Microservices stems from messy large systems. So why not just have messy small systems instead.

Why is that people believe they need a Microservice architecture in the first place? None of the benefits of Microservices are absent in a carefully designed monolith.

If we are not going to give up our frenetic rapid development practices then we just need tools that help us move fast while keeping code understandable. Maybe we just need higher level languages where the machine can just keep track of all the details from extremely high level specifications. Software is too hard for humans.
