The Root Cause-Industry

That pundits of every hue and stripe have built secure careers delving into the “root causes” of crime, poverty, prejudice, injustice, mental disorders, drug addiction, war and such other evils is not surprising. If the roots causes of evil were discoverable they would have been discovered and effectively dealt with eons ago. But because not even the greatest thinkers in history have been able to come close to offering credible explanations, the root-causes of evil remain an open question, a subject that can be at infinitum rehashed by pundits without incurring the risk of chancing upon the truth and, thereby, rendering their profession irrelevant. A recession-proof gig if you can get it.
