is, "Getting the question right is 90% of the answer."

You rightly suggest: "Getting the question right is 90% of the answer."
Tragically preventing creativity and breakthroughs, our questions about human crises are usually limited to what happened and who did it.
We rarely ask questions with power, open-ended ones like "why?"
After that, "but why?"
Of course we will return to ourselves and our human condition that requires understanding of our disconnection from one another and our best selves.
In our experience, this asking of "why?" happens not alone but most fruitfully in small circles of deeply interested citizens in search of community.
