Luzius MeisserThis is actually an extremely strong argument against globalization and for a decentralized world with many small, closed communities. The more connectedSee more (globalized) you are, the fewer repeated interactions you will experience, and the less likely is trust to evolve. However, if you live in a small community where you meet the same persons again and again, trust can evolve. That's also why people in the country-side usually are more trusting than those in big cities. It also means that a nice and friendly society can break down as it grows, and that opening borders can lead to a collapse of trust.
