I was listening to the news on the way home tonight about something truly local, of no interest to the world, and I simply did not believe the news. I did not believe the reporter, I did not believe the minister (government, not religious THOSE cannot be trusted at all, ever) and I thought: "Why am I so cynical?" and I was wondering if I was "cynical" or "jaded". I'll be back to you on this, but I'm definitely cynical.
So when I got home I asked google "Why am I so cynical" (I kid you not, I'm now asking Google to resolve some of my deepest questions), and Google, in a manner of speaking, told me I wasn't alone.
I'll leave this to you for now, but a great many people don't trust a whole lot of other people it seems.
