Andrew Coyne Rings True

Whether it's Charlie Hebdo and their irreverent humour or ISIL-type folk and their efforts to frighten the world into ignoring their barbarism; whether it's Big Oil lobbying the world into silence about their practices or Big Government and their lack of reverence for the principles of democracy, none of it lasts.
A hundred years from now, no one will be talking about any of them.  A thousand years from now, they will all be forgotten.  A million years from now, we will be forgotten.
Our petty egoism want to make us the punchline, but we're not.
Nobody laughs last. 
So you might as well laugh now.
