I believe charge is a fundamental property of particles and has no underlying explanation.

No matter what answer we give you, there will always be another "Why?" question behind it, until finally we get to "Because that's how the universe we live in behaves".

Why do objects fall at 9.8 m/sec^2 on the surface of the earth? Because of gravity - Newton's law says ##F=Gmm_E/r^2##. Why is that Newton's law and not something else? Well, because that's how the universe we live in behaves. Why does the universe we live in behave that way? Physics and other experimental sciences can't answer that question, all they can do is tell us how the universe behaves.

This thread is closed, as there's nothing to say here that hasn't already been said in many previous threads. (As always, you can PM a mentor to ask that it be reopened if you do have something new to add).
