Have any others noticed the circle of people you trust is getting smaller? I was thinking about that driving home today. On the other hand the people I do trust I am sure they have my back. Still it used to be when I met someone they had to do or something to get on my, I don’t trust them, list. Now it is more like they have to prove they are worth trusting. The bad thing is it has made me suspicious of a lot of people. The good thing is my situational awareness is a lot better than it used to be. Maybe it is getting like the old west?
I wonder if this is how people felt in 1861 when we became a divided nation? Still if I lived where they were de-funding the police I believe it would be time to form a neighborhood militia.
