To the Journal editor:
There are four ways to learn: by sight, by hearing, by writing and by asking (speech) questions.
The wisdom seeker will eventually, over decades, develop the ability to both ask and answer all of his or her own questions without further assistance. This, by itself, is a miracle.
With enough individual miracles we can create a new and more positive society in which we take the lead on deciding and instituting domestic affairs nationwide while the national and state governments merely bring up the rear and provide support if we need it.
We must take the effort or forever accept that dysfunctional politicians will never place any value on what we say or do.
