As I See It: The messiah and false messiahs

There is a bogeyman or hobgoblin many of us have been taught to fear for about 2,000 years. People have been expecting for several thousand years that there will be a messiah, a savior who would bring prosperity, love and peace for everyone, with an end to pain, misery, hunger and worry. One messiah has been accepted by billions of people, who anticipate his return.
