REST: The New SQL?

A few years ago, we built rather monolithic, database-centric systems with thin clients, and did not even feel uncomfortable with them. Then, thanks to the rise of JavaScript, clients became thicker and thicker. And when microservices came along the way, our software became more and more distributed. Somewhere along that road, pretty much everything on the server side turned into a REST API. Has REST become the new SQL? A controversial discussion from an architectural point of view.
