Trust has to be earned and the loss of trust in the US started as a slippery slope years ago. But many failed to heed the warnings and now here the Americans are. That the bastion of democracy can turn authoritarian can be funny if it were not so ironic and dangerous. But there is hope and all good men and women must grasp it and reclaim the lost trust. A long road but it is doable. The world’s fate depends on it.
