Do you really think that the suffering could end before the geulah would come?



Why not? It did in Egypt.

If I didn't would I of posted the comment?
I don't know if you watch movies or not but the other day I saw 2012. What a depressing movie. Left me upset for days and it took me a day or two to realize what had REALLY annoyed me with the movie.
You would think that what annoyed me was the cheap high tech Arches and their biblical inspiration but no (along with the really crapola story).
What irritated me most was all the deaths! Who cares about the heroes getting to those arches? Millions and millions die... AND THIS IS A MOVIE? This is entertainment? Nobody could find a better idea for this movie then lame arches that save a handful of human lives only??? Nobody could write anything smarter into the script? Or was it the point to paint humanity so futile and idiotic?

B"H, hollywood doesn't rule the world and that's not what I'm trying to say BUT I have big hopes in humanity, I don't think I'm the only one (cough cough **pointing upwards**). Shouldn't everyone?

I have not seen the movie, but from your description it sounds kind of pessimistic. The perspectives of geula that I have learned from Chabad and Breslov sound more optimistic to me, the expectation is for the coming of a Peaceful redemption, without much destruction at all, if any I think.

Please may Hashem send the geula shleima soon. Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman.
