The problem with not trusting, I believe, is that it is good advice only part of the time.
So, naturally, if one does not want to EVER be disappointed by misplaced trust,
one would never trust. Sort of like staying home, so one never
gets wet from rain, I believe.
Maybe u failed to read my entire post.
I acknowledged that not trusting is non-viable.
"don 't trust anyone with more
than u r willing to lose
However, if one expects human nature to be fallible,
one might gamble on trusting people, knowing in advance
the gamble may not pay off.
I don 't oppose gambling.
The saying comes to mind, "better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved."
I have been in the position to evaluate the wisdom of that.
In retrospect, I 'd have had a much, much happier life
with a great deal less emotional pain, if a certain young lady
of the Austrian Aristocracy had ignored me
instead of making sweet social advances toward me.
I 'd change that retroactively, if I coud.
But the problem with a Ponzi scheme, I believe, is people are lulled into "believing,"
as big dividends are received, and the big dividends are just
other people's money. So, as already said, if it is too good to be true,
one should start to question if it is true.
U better be CAREFUL
about what u believe
or what u trust
