Since I speak often that we need to ask more why questions, as well as a few more what, how, and when questions, permit me to ask a few why questions about the past decade.
Why would Prince Andrew think it was a good idea for him to visit a known pedophile’s house and be photographed with teen girls he is accused of having sex with?
Why do people still not find it a national security concern when a US president bends over backwards to support various Russian narratives and running shadow diplomacy?
Why do mass shootings continue at such a rampant rate in the US and no tangible action is taken to address these and everyday shootings?
Why do the kids (such as Greta Thunberg, Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, eg) understand our climate change and gun problems better than many adults?
Why are two of the heroes of the decade female – New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern who led to new gun laws in one week after mass shooting and the 16 year old climate activist, Thunberg?
Why have people allowed the media to be labeled around the world as enemies of the people by so-called leaders not known for truth – Trump, Putin, Bolsonaro, Duterte, Xi, Johnson, Erdogan, et al?
Why are we not actively condemning hate groups for domestic terrorism – this is not right?
Why is the current White House trying to solve our growing poverty problem by kicking people off their healthcare and food stamps, and defanging the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau designed to punish predatory lending?
Why is there not a bigger outcry for screwing over our Kurdish allies who fought our enemies?
Why is the Hong Kong story being covered far more than China’s abduction and brainwashing of Muslim and other religious groups within concentration camps?
There are so many more why questions than I have space. Please add a few of yours.
