Sixty-seven years into This Experiment Known as Life, I can still author naïve questions.
“Why can’t anybody simply do the right thing, because it’s the right thing?”
“How do liars justify their lying, particularly when everyone knows they’re lying?”
“Why do people who know the lying liars are lying continue to not only excuse the lies and the lying liars, but promote them and even worship them?”
“Is any collective gesture of simple decency now viewed as ‘weak’, or ‘socialism’?”
“When did proven safe and effective vaccines that protect individuals and society from deadly and costly diseases become anything other than celebrated achievements and symbols of human advancement and enlightenment?”
“How can any person of intellect and goodwill contend that ‘freedom’ extends to petty and irrational acts of personal selfishness that endanger the lives of others?”
“How did ‘science’ become a dirty word?”
“A mask—a MASK—throws you into hysteria?”
“When did serious allegations cease to require serious evidence? Or any evidence at all?”
“And on the flip side, when did it become OK to ignore and even deny serious, obvious and conclusive evidence (also known as hundreds of hours of video) documenting a violent, organized, seditious insurrection whose STATED intent was to overthrow the government of the United States?”
“Why is it that the folks who seem to bray the loudest and shrillest about ‘America’ are largely the same people who have abandoned, rejected and openly scorned the very principles and institutions that truly make America exceptional?”
“Racism? Really? Really?”
“Why would anyone care who anyone else loves?”
