If we keep asking the same questions, we will keep getting the same answers. Pay attention to the questions you ask, noting how many remain the same over time. Things are the way they are because we are only allowed to ask the same questions. Every institution/structure limits the questions that can be asked about the institution/structure. Start by asking what cannot be asked. "What questions are not permitted?" "What questions make people uncomfortable here?" Follow that up with "What assumptions/presumptions do these questions expose, maintain, keep in place?" We aren't going to begin to ask better questions until we begin to ask different questions. "Who says so?" and "How do they know?" Are two of my faves. Follow-up questions are crucial. The two rules for question asking are: Ask all of the questions that beg to be asked. Say all of the things that cry out to be said (Saying those things will initiate additional questions, and the two rules together will take you straight to the bottom of what's what).
