In way too little we trust

Adam Garfinkle challenges left, right, and center in all institutional forms to address the issue of trustworthiness as an essential social glue.  My observation of many of the discussion treads on this forum suggests that his analysis is spot on.

Agreed.  Wholeheartedly. 


I also recommend The American Interest, to those interested.  A good friend is an editor.  (He and I frequently disagree, so don't assume from my endorsement any particular ideological tilt.)

Very insightful article that confirms many things I have observed over the years.  Some might think his assessment that little positive change can be hoped for under the current structures is unnecessarily pessimistic, I am simply reminded as a Christian that this present world will not last and the only kingdom of eternal worth is found in Christ.
