Why didn't Jesus say anything about these important aspects of life?

Ostensibly as the designer and creator of the universe he should have had some tremendously valuable insights and advice to give to us for these major aspects of life. Especially if we are in the role of waiting for his return before everything gets made perfect. For 2000 years Man has been struggling to deal with these issues, and there has been much confusion and disagreement. In this context if he couldn't or wouldn't help us to get or stay on the right track, how can we interpret this to be good?

What Jesus Did Say

Well then, what WAS his subject? What did he have to say that was so important as to make all these other issues not worthy of counsel?
