In January's free issue, NewsLaugh.com, The Sanely Funny Humor Magazine, presents new humorous commentary and fiction, featuring "A Sentimental Journey To The Junkyard of Great Ideas."

Here's an excerpt:

Excuse our innocence. We used to think that great ideas have influence. But they seem to have been tossed in the junkyard by an alarming number of people, who are evidently guided by ideas that are pretty much the opposite of the ones we have in mind.

We missed the originals and grew sentimental about them. So we reflected on their fate. Here is a selection of them, along with what seem to be their current replacements:

Great Idea: The Sanctity of Life

Current Replacement: The Cheapness of Life

Great Idea: Life According to Reason

Current Replacement: Life According to Unreason

Great Idea: The Golden Mean

Current Replacement: Extremes of Every Kind

Great Idea: Thou Shalt Not Kill

Current Replacement: Kill to Make a Point

Great Idea: Love Your Neighbor

Current Replacement: Hate Your Neighbor

Great Idea: Perpetual Peace And Progress

Current Replacement: Perpetual War And Regression

Great Idea: Live and Let Live

Current Replacement: Die and Make Die

Great Idea: The Greatest Happiness for the Greatest Number

Current Replacement: The Greatest Misfortune for the Greatest Number

Great Idea: Sex is Beautiful

Current Replacement: Sex is Shameful

Great Idea: Self-Realization

Current Replacement: Self-Indulgence

Great Idea: Fellow Feeling

Current Replacement: Fellow Indifference

Great Idea: Magna est Veritas

Current Replacement: Minor est Veritas

It's enough to persuade an optimist to take the long view.
