Can we trust the people? After Trump, I’m no longer sure | Coffee House.

The right-on Conservative in name only, Matthew Paris, has the gall to ask openly the question in the hearts of treacherous metropolitan élitists across the Free World. It’s not an easy question to answer because it depends on:
  1. How trusting he is. In my experience an inclination to trust is a good indicator that a person is himself trustworthy. If you see your fellow men as a threat it’s often because — given the opportunities presented by power — you would be a threat to them. 
  2. How prepared he is to compromise. I kept working, contributing the greater good and taking care of my family for decades while people who despised me and had contempt for my homely (and for most of modern history entirely uncontroversial) values rewrote every rule in an attempt to shave slices off my liberty. They packed the judiciary, subverted the command structure of the police and staffed academia with their lackeys. They sought to cow me into submission with abuse and denormalise my ethics. With the tables turned, can Mr Parris keep calm and carry on as I did? Can he assume his political opponents are well intentioned even as we dismantle their orthodoxies?  

I don’t know the answer to these questions. I can however ever be certain of this. The people can’t trust Matthew Parris.
