    Personally, I think it is.

    Trust your fellow humans.

    In the era of catfishing and identity theft, not to mention the accessible GPS locations of just about anything digital, it makes it very difficult to trust many people. No at all am I saying that people don't deserve to be trusted. But it's more difficult.

    Do you think the people who are prone to steal/cheat/lie are in the majority?

    Absolutely not. I believe the number of trusted people - or people who do not cheat or steal - greatly outweigh those who do. Which I think is precisely the reason people are starting to taking advantage of those good people in tougher times. But in the ok g run those people turning to bad behavior will be punished far longer than of they just rode the wave like the rest of us. I use prison as an example. Stealing stereos for money on the side might financially better you for that moment. Until you get put in the slammer. I'm rambling now.
