Can Undue Stress Lead to Armageddon?


I hope you will forgive these random notes.

Since I am writing about the potential End of Days, it seems inappropriate to polish it editorially. Would you revise a suicide note?


Everyone has problems and has a set of behaviors to cope with them. This is short term.

The long term stress can be so brutal it nullifies life. I have a manic-depressive friend so afflicted he'll be stuck in bed for 2 months barely eating. He turns on a dime into the manic 24/7 house wrecker constantly building and tearing down.

Only in her darkest moments my friend will recognize her life was ruined by rape at age 5. She flies into rages at 15-minute intervals. Only asleep [12 hours per day] she has peace.

It was five years before I could write about that horrible event.

The stress can mount from the outside too. Minority group dads can take out their aggressions on the wives and kids. This can be physical, verbal and sexual. These rotten habits go on generation after generation. Inside the family such behavior can be considered normal. In Israel 50% of families can be abusive in one way or another. Kids tend to blame themselves for divorce, beatings, incest etc.
