If we ask a question, do people have to answer?
I actually don't think there is any law about answering questions.
In most cases, people don't have to answer--they can stay silent.
However, when one asks a question, we do well by the inquirer to answer his/her question with care unless that question gets into a personal sphere, one where you have the right to privacy.
When people don't want to answer questions, we have to wonder why?
Why would they not answer?
Is it inertia, worry, annoyance, time, interest, focus?
How can we ask questions in ways inspire people to readily answer, respond, and converse about the matter in question? What would help in this situation?
I will think more on this topic in the days to come.
