Why We Want Moshiach Now

Since the time that we were young children we were taught: We want Moshiach now! This concept is not the exclusive domain of fringe elements of Jewry; rather it is a basic tenet of our religion. The Rambam counts it as one of the 13 Main Principles, and if one denies it he is considered a heretic, with no portion in the World to Come. And so, we daven for Moshiach. We sing songs about Moshiach. We wait for Moshiach. But do we understand why? Do we understand what it is that we wait for? This Shmuz focuses on what life will be like in the times of Moshiach, and why in fact we anxiously await his appearance.
