You can trust a specific entity until it no longer deserves that trust.
 Honest errors or incompetence can be remedied to a point, but
deliberate malice is grounds for full and immediate dismissal, with the
malefactors ear-tagged for life.

Many smaller pockets of trust may evolve in that milieu, each involving
perhaps fewer than ten notable people, and always subjected to scrutiny
and competition.
