Are you arguing with Ramba"m? Because that's who DW Duke quoted.

I am not arguing with anybody. I am asking: what do those statements mean — what I wrote (that Mashiach is literally a multi-professional Jew who has to exercise his numerous talents and that geula is lack of all those physical things), or is there anything deeper?

One can think of golus in terms of a bunch of symptoms, geula as reversal of those symptoms, and Mashiach as someone who will do the reversing, or one can say that perhaps the symptoms are a hitzoinius of some deeper, more essential and more encompassing problem, and Mashiach’s role is to rectify specifically that problem, which will alleviate the symptoms.
