    i would not ! i think if suffering didn't exist , neither would pleasure or triumph !
    what is your definition of suffering ? if i could end it , i would eliminate the negative side of suffering ! not the positive part !
    i think suffering could be useful too ! couldn't it ?

    some suffering must exist to build strength, determination etc , but large scale unjust ones shouldnt: natural disasters, poverty, , genetic dieseases etc

    I'd end suffering towards innocent people and animals.

    when i hear of an evil person suffering it makes me very happy

    I'd absolutely end it!
    But would be annoyed as there are a few people I'm ashamed to know who deserve to have some form of suffering!

    But I would stop it!

    Yes, if I could stop suffering I would do so with a blink of an eye.

    Some suffering is natural and it can help us grow, but there is an extent. Some suffering is paralysing.

    I don't believe it's my right to interfere on a global scale in the lives of everyone. It would practically erase everyone and create new people with the same memories but none of the negative thoughts. I'm too much for liberty.

    Triumph is only useful in overcoming hardship, but without hardship it is meaningless

    If my massive poos had no physical pain associated with them I'd feel no sense of relief and happiness when I finished them. I couldn't live in a world like that.

    Also what about the poor masochists?
