I have often regretted, in this my later life, not having asked more questions as a youngster, being too much inclined just to accept what my parents knew about family history or current affairs.
Rudyard Kipling wrote ‘them that asks no questions isn’t told a lie‘ but he was talking about ‘class’ deception in ‘A Smuggler’s Song’.
Samuel Johnson wrote in his later life ‘The insolence of wealth will creep out‘

It is designed to be a 3-day event, where many questions will be both asked and answered – questions about what is happening in today’s world – answers as to how to live in it – but not of it, as Churchill said about Britain’s position in post-war Europe.
