99% of what you read in the news today won't make it to the history chronicles 100 years from now, let alone in a 1000 years.
The minor events are simply not important enough to pay attention to.
Unfortunately, as humans we spend most of our time on those 99% unimportant matters.
History has filtered all those unimportant occurances and gives you just the important information.
In history, you will get only what have passed 100 or 1000 years of filtering.
