Very good read. While there are many reasons to NOT trust institutions and corporations, they do not come clear till the truth is exposed. Today’s open nature of the press, blogging, the Internet in general, makes it hard to hide alternative points of view and accusations.
I guess the key is that many deceptions have been exposed and how the world really works (and probably always has) has been redefined. Add to that, true facts are getting harder to recognize puts us all on a path towards doubt as the default reaction.
