TRUST ISSUES: REFLECTING ON THE BIRTH OF A NATION JULY 4, 2021



Is freedom the “free domain?” The freedom to dominate?

The dominion of the free?

The highest law of freedom is the law of responsibility.


As I reflect on the greatness, goodness, graciousness, grievousness, greediness and giftedness of the United States and its citizens, I can trust and not trust you at the same time. I might trust you to drive me to the doctor and not trust you to conduct the medical procedure.

Humanity was created as trustees in the earth: to be fruitful, to multiply, to fill it, to subdue and to have dominion.


BUT not people over other people, men over women, etc.

Trust must be restored.

Trust is confident reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing.

Distrust is to regard with doubt or suspicion and with the expectation of harm

Mistrust is lack of trust or confidence.

Entrust is to charge or invest with a trust responsibility.

With humility, may we continue restore national confidence, and corporate credibility and integrity, and personal trustworthiness for the trust that has been lost.

Interesting it is, I'll say.America has this duplicity going on. To trust or not to trust. The Dream and the Nightmare. Meritocracy and privilege, power and prestige. Amazing how the two can coexist in the same place but also certainly possible. We are the evidence and those who came before us. Trust must be restored indeed.
