Appreciate the point that you're making there One.

Still, I figured that his comment was referring to the here and now! I made the mental interpretation "the slogan/chant/mantra is all meaningless until it reaches a point in time when it's not anymore." I figured that this was in relation to the second part of your question!

On further thought though, guess it is possible my interpretation is wrong. Maybe he did mean something else i.e. "everything is meaningless till it's not" which wouldn't really be a proper answer.

I guess the statement could be interpreted either way...

You did choose to communicate in a sarcastic manner to BlackLight first OAA. Technically he/she did give an answer to your question, even if the answer wasn't to your satisfaction.

As far as I could tell, he dropped a platitude that answered nothing. My question was about what people who use this phrase mean by it NOW. To say that it means nothing until it means something is pointless, because he's not saying what people mean by it NOW.
If I told you that a radioactive element decays over time as an answer to "How much of the radioactive element is there now?", would you say I had answered your question?

BlackLight - OAA is not an American and so does not have the background context that you're taking for granted.  So instead of dumping wise-sounding platitudes on him like that, you should spend some time elaborating on what you actually mean.

It's all meaningless until it means something

Yes, thank you for that platitude. Care to (try to) answer the question in the OP?

I did. Sorry if the plain truth eludes you.

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants" is another one. Everyone has heard of this - but almost nobody organizes their life around it as a principle. Until an accident of history brings it into focus, and suddenly it's their North Star.

In a valley of violence
8/10
A western in the style of spaghetti western that borders on spoof.  Nothing but fun.
