Questions-Answers

I know that I know nothing vs everything

The Greek philosopher Socrates (c.470–399 BC) once wrote: "For I was conscious that I knew practically nothing...". Later, Plato changed that into: I know that I know nothing (Wiki).

Did you ever ask for help?

I remember one instance of asking for help to someone. I did not doubt the answer. I expected a Yes. One instance isn't much in six decades.

Asking questions = answering questions (2)

My title above came to mind after reading a recent Telegraph Economic Intelligence (sic!) article: Like it or not, Brexit is a part of Britain's inflation problem. Apparently, the UK wonders if Brexit is a culprit for its high inflation. In May 2023, I published Asking questions = answering questions (1). The conservative-right newspaper The Telegraph is the...
