In my years explaining and applying this understanding, I have come to find the Trust aspect to be most useful in putting "Public Officials" on edge or defensive. Should the people at large come to understand this principal, and put them in their proper place, I expect we would soon see a shift from the current corrupt systems. Question is "Are there enough Statesmen and Women" to fill the need in replacing career thieves?
