suspicion is a deadly force

Tangent a.k.a. multi-tasking.
So much thinking recently on the necessity of (what I keep referring to as) an emotional/social infrastructure. Maybe there are folks in the world who’ve succeeded at living highly ethical lives without being embedded in such, but it remains a struggle for me. I imagine folks have, otherwise my self-judgment couldn’t be so harsh, could it?
I’ve got this fairly simple equation going: neglect (neither censure nor encouragement) fosters anomie. In this void, ‘self’ (however conceived?) must be shielded by various forms of defensive/protective insularity. Joining an infrastructure requires certain skills not fostered in an environment of neglect. Some folks are undoubtedly much quicker studies than me!
One of those skills is trust.
