Negative Trust

Negative trust – like the trust of the cold war. I trust that if I attack you with nuclear arms you will strike back in such a way that I will regret my attack. I trust you know that I will attack you, too.

Or the trust in fast food chains : I trust that if your food would really harm me that would become public and destroy your business – and you have no interest in that.

Or the trust into politicians : if you are a crook people will notice and not reelect you – and you have no interest in that.

Where is the positive trust? Art, religion, culture, friends?

Peace is build on trust.

    While all fine and good on the surface, seems to me that there are many varying degrees of trust.. If you trust fast food chains, you are taking a very big gamble with your life, for instance. Maybe not in the moment, but over a portion of your, yes.
