No question. It used to be the latter which were much easier times, something happened unfortunately. It's different times we live in. That's so cliché but in this case it's so true, but not for the better. It's the current climate we must learn to survive in while trying to make changes to bring trust back. If it is possible my guess is I'll never live to see much significant change but I guess we gotta try.

I guess my response to that would be that we define the times we live in -- we're not passive observers but creators and shapers of our society. Surviving the current climate is as easy as choosing to trust one another -- which I believe a vast, vast majority of us already do -- and not capitulating to a gun-slinging minority's attempt to drag all of us into a Randian anarchy ...
