In a recent YTBPF* Poll, the result from among all respondents was a virtual tie:
Love – 49%
Hope – 49%
Faith – 1%
Rambilicus – 1%
[*Yet To Be Paid For]
Remarkably, out of the 5,298,812 polled, not one mentioned the correct answer! This in itself is an indictment of our society and a leading indicator of how things became FUBAR, to borrow a popular acronym.
For those still wondering, our Most Important Word is:
You are most likely proving its status right now by asking “Why” is “Why” our most important word?
Why, that’s quite simple. Without “why”, Ignorance would be even more ubiquitous than it is already; Aggressive Ignorance has already reached pandemic proportions rivaling the dreaded COVID – but at least “AI” has a cure: facts.
Without “why”, we miss knowing the most important answers. Where, when, who and how don’t hold a candle to “Why”; in fact, most are one-answer specific.
Example: Where did Covid come from? China. When was it discovered? 2019. Who developed it? Doctors and scientists. What is it? One in a family of viruses that causes respiratory illness.
But the most important question – still unanswered – is “Why”? Why would any doctor or group of virologists believe they are compelled to conscientiously and diligently work to create something that “does not occur in nature” and, once manipulated, could wipe out the human race?
We know who the monsters are who bludgeoned Freedom, Liberty, Logic, Reason into submission. We know the names and faces of the political sociopaths responsible for the murder of tens of thousands of elderly with their illegal edicts and immoral mandates. We even know the where, when, and how – But why? Why would seemingly normal people inexplicably morph into homicidal maniacs – and enjoy it?
Lord Byron Acton’s famous quote “Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely” comes to mind.
But, for the Faucis, Cuomos, Whitmers, Newsoms, Bidens, and the rest of the sordid politicians, power, and its unavoidable corruption, have no discernable consequences like those suffered by the average citizen. All those mentioned still enjoy the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. While businesses suffered and closed, and while occupations were eliminated, and while loved ones died, and while families were ruined, those responsible haven’t missed a paycheck, a vacation, a holiday gathering, or dining out with friends. They travel with impunity, blithely declaring their natural immunity to the restrictions, rules, and regulations developed by them, then imposed with force on the rest of us.
Where is the rule of “equal before the law?” What happened to “…and justice for all?”
Why do 350 million souls allow a few hundred “officials” to trample the inalienable rights they swore an oath to uphold and protect?
“Why” opens the door to find answers as well as solutions.
“Why” will take us as far as our curiosity, intellect, and courage can handle.
