) Even if low interest rates "justify" high stock valuations, if buying at stocks at these very elevated valuations, your return will be pathetic compared to historical returns..

Scene from a great book & movie:
Frodo: I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times; but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.

Will be sad times for my grnadchildren and great-grandchildren.
