Trust is Dead

Trust is breaking down in our societies — trust not just in big institutions but also in the natural good of the common man.

Politicians, bankers, delivery men, our neighbors, our doctors, our children’s teachers are all suspect, are all now known to be capable of doing wrong — we’ve seen all the gritty details in case after case.

Code=Trust

The future of trust is code, lines upon lines of unchang

Quotes by George Donnelly  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“My uncle is real smart, and he always says it. He says, “You are what you eat.” I just ate a cheeseburger and I been on the front lawn mooin’ at the top of my lungs for an hour. “Mooo!” I holler, and the fella across the street slams his window closed.”
George Donnelly, Bite-Sized Stories: A Multi-Genre Flash Fiction Anthology

“Never depend upon institutions or government to solve any problem. All social movements are founded by, guided by, motivated and seen through by the passion of individuals. ”
Margaret Mead

“Hence the sterile, uninspiring futility of a great many theoretical discussions of ethics, and the resentment which many people feel towards such discussions: moral principles remain in their minds as floating abstractions, offering them a goal they cannot grasp and demanding that they reshape their souls in its image, thus leaving them with a burden of undefinable moral guilt.”
Ayn Rand, The Romantic Manifesto

“Today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups... So I ask, in my writing, What is real? Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo-realities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. I do not distrust their motives; I distrust their power. They have a lot of it. And it is an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind. I ought to know. I do the same thing.”
Philip K. Dick

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“If men are good, you don’t need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don’t dare have one. ”
Robert LeFevre
