I don't know why people don't question things. I work retail and have dealt with the public for over 20 years... far too many are mentally lazy.
It's not that they are not capable, it's just that any extra effort on their part is too much effort...so leave it to somebody else.
Have you ever been in a leadership position? If so, you have seen the followers gripe about how things are going or being done...but if you stop and
ask for constructive solutions or ideas...or ask who wants to run it? They generally turn away....
same with dealing with ideas, investigating and research,and even thinking....so much easier to let someone else do it for them.
One more example, I farm and also help manage a feed and seed and we sell ag and tractor parts. I have people coming in all the time looking for
obscure parts to some old Farm-All tractor. I ask what model.?..don't know, it's a Farm-All. Did you look in the manual, if you have one.?..no. Did
you consult the local dealer?..Yes, they can't get it....thought you would have one.
Just for fun, I looked on the internet...in less than four minutes, I had over 2million matches to FarmAll Parts, went to the first site and literally
could have built one from scratch...and shipped the parts over nite. And my customer was mad at me for not stocking a selinoid switch for a Farm All
Super C tractor made 50 years ago.
Long story short, most folks aren't scared of the truth, they're too lazy to seek it.
