That is a difficult question to answer, Gemini, as I have not had to deal with it, thank God! I know that is a cop out. But I will think more on it as we will be exploring questions similar to this in future discussion questions. So stay tuned....

gemini, you can be sure that the discussion of conscience as well as the power of fear will be coming up frequently as we progress. Good questions! :grin:
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -
Wow! What a ride!

Yes, we are too trusting; we give everyone the benefit of the doubt until we are proved wrong.
As I read this passage I felt insulted by the use of the word gullible, because it implies easy to take advantage of or trick.
But as I read the next section, I felt he was envious of our freedom and basic instinct to trust others. Of course then he proceeded to turn that trait to his advantage.
