"In the long run, we are all dead."
Please - that's a quote from John Maynard Keynes. And we are paying respects to the man who spent his professional career debunking Keynesian economics.

BTW, it is not to be assumed to be true. In the long run, at least until Christ returns, each of us will die - but that is not the same as all people being dead.

"In the long run, we are all dead" is an "Eat, drink, and make merry, for tomorrow we die" philosophy. If our ancestors had followed that prescription we would not have had the patrimony that we have inherited - and if we follow that prescription we will be betraying our posterity instead of honoring the preamble of the Constitution which lists among its purposes "to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity."
