Changing the Question

The biggest theme I’ve noticed in conversations over the past few days — almost exclusively with people who could too easily be lumped together in some kind of “liberal bubble” is a shift in the question they’re asking.

Four years ago, it was generally something like, “How could they?”

Now, it’s almost universally either “How could we” or “Who are we?”

There’s no relishing, no reveling in this uncomfortable revelation.

But if it’s true that “the quality of your life is the quality of your questions,” this could be a much more fruitful starting point for a new beginning than the naïve innocence of a “repudiation” would have been.
