We’re not very good at asking the important questions.

Throughout the health care debate, the questions “why have costs gone up?” was rarely asked, and answered even less.

When “why” questions are asked, we invariably have a share of the answer, be it good or bad. Taking responsibility is a characteristic that is lacking today. It’s easier to blame someone, or to simply walk away.

When we begin to ask “why” questions about sustainability, we have to admit our measure of guilt in the current state of affairs.
