On trust

Although humans are famously untrustworthy, I think that very few people are without morals. Most can be trusted to act according to their morals, or failing that some shared morals of society such as the law or tradition. Of course, these morals change, and may not suit you.

Hardly anyone will uphold your morals without sharing them. If you know some who will, you are fortunate. Otherwise, your best bet is to find people who will stand by their own morals or some shared morals, and check that these will cover you for what you want to do.
