WHY is a small word that asks a big question, WHY? If you have kids, you know that is one of the first words you wish your kids had not learned, because they drive you crazy with it! The usual answer becomes, “Because I said so!”, did you ever think about WHY that answer is so common? We were taught to respect our parents or fear the rath of their punishment.
We were told the same answer, over and over, we were all conditioned to not question authority, and that, “Because I said so” answer, made it final, further questioning, WHY, could bring their authority in to question, it was disrespectful, so, maybe that is the reason we have all quit asking our “Leaders”, the politicians we vote into office, WHY, they did or did not do what we voted them into office for, the purpose that got them elected.
What happens if you put the shoe on the other foot? If you ask your kid WHY they didn’t do their homework or clean up their room, not answering will also question your authority, in both cases with your kid, punishment could be the result of such an infringement, WHY?
Conditioning is again the answer, every generation is conditioned to behave a certain way, at least it was until a few decades ago, then everything changed. Schools, and teachers became a second source of authority, in many cases running counter to the parents or family
Today, if you attempt to assert your authority to your kids, they may quickly put you in your place by threatening to tell their teacher or something, you know longer have authority, WHY?
Again, conditioning, but now, we are being conditioned to not ask WHY, because this is progress, we have all grown and the authority has been taken from us and given to our kid’s teachers, who give authority over you to the kids. No longer do you know better, your kids do, so when you now ask them WHY, they are comfortable lying to you or telling you they know better because the teacher said so
This came from their teacher, the teacher’s teacher and so on, where did the teachers learn it, the teachers union for one, that is what they call progress, like removing “prayer”, “the pledge of allegiance”, “evolution”, or “global warming caused by man”, if you don’t share this same ideology, you must be a flat earther, a conservative! All of these, and many more, are to take authority or respect away from God, our country, the parent and so on. This is why elimination of these various ideology departments, like Education, EPA, etc are so threatening to them, this would remove their authority, respect, and control of our kids. This also explains why Obama wants to take over the student loans, and make College a “Right”? To insure that more of our kids receive the full training they need to become a Progressive Liberal and vote for him and his kind and completely remove God, the family, etc. from their lives.
Back to the elected official, now that we have both been conditioned, or trained, no longer do they feel fear or shame about lying, and in the case of the progressive left, they actually believe what they say, because that is what their college professor, “teacher” told them. They are correct and you are a Neanderthal if you do not agree, see how it works? They try to start out with a “This is why” speech, you must be stupid to question them, right? Just like a kid, don’t give up, by asking why, you are doing the same thing, and if you get a “Because I said so” answer, that is an answer in itself. You already know the answer, so keep asking WHY, until they tell the truth!
Even if a candidate claims to believe what you do, when they do something contrary to what they should have, ask them WHY!
Confrontation, arguments, heated discussions and a divided world are the result of decades of lost control, take this control back and stop the arguing, remember the little kid, no matter what the answer, just keep asking WHY?
When something like the topic of “Obamacare” comes up, how do you deal with it? Ask WHY! (1) WHY is it mandatory? (2) WHY do we need it? Then, regardless of the answer ask WHY? If the answer to question (1) is “to spread the cost to make it affordable”, don’t argue, ask WHY? When the answer to number (2) is, “to help those less fortunate by spreading the wealth of some to cover the cost of others”, ask Why?
Just like a child, keep asking WHY, maybe they will see the pattern to their answers and figure it out for themselves? Just don’t fall for the “Why Not? trick! WHY not usually means they have no answer. or don’t know it. Just ask, don’t you know WHY? If they say don’t you know WHY? Simply say no, that is why I am asking. Stand firm and wait for an answer, just keep it simple, WHY?
