the whole point
I've only seen the pilot (We don't have HBO). I'm going to risk being redundant, but the loss of people itself is not the point.
The questions bothering the leftovers are:
1) What happened?
2) Where did they go?
3) Are they (ever) coming back?
4) Why them?
5) Why not me/us?
6) What does this mean for our conception of reality?
7) More that I'm not thinking of right now.
It's not about the loss; as been pointed out, that happens all the time. 2% is significant, but not world-altering. Most of the world and it's infrastructure remains - this is not an "end of the world story". It's about dealing with the unknown. I once heard that all you have to do to drive someone insane is to prove that everything he knows is wrong. That's the essential story here. Everyone's world view has been jarred and everyone deals with it differently.
If we find about what caused the disappearance, the show would be over.
