Trust me is probably the most deceptive remark conceived of by human intelligence. It means everything when one person wants something another has and nothing once satiate.
People enter into all sorts of agreements on this little phrase. Marriage vows promise this. Legal contracts bind it. Judges can enforce it, but people will forever breech these boundaries in one way or another, the prevalence of a commitment to stand behind such a remark influenced largely by compulsivity, transient interests and absolutely no real coercive power on the planet to enforce it, enter the METRIC solidarity pledge.
Intelligent caring people will commit. Scoundrels will not. Likewise, the former will not promise to blindly follow orders; the latter will. Ultimately the very same population that has no moral compass to begin with can be pledged to fraternal service in perpetuity under threat of death for redaction and thus motivated to service racketeering and fraud shielded by their own.
In other words, radicalized honor= threat of death for self regulation and reasoning, albeit there has to be a strong motivator to compel one to a desire to forfeit the will to an alpha. Depending on the perversions of the crook, solidarity pledging is a broad spectrum reward system, albeit typical reinforcers are exotic sums of money and access to indulgence in vice in the one hand and unchecked aces to power and resources in the other.
Honor pledging delivers at will association, solidarity a commitment in perpetuity, which is the reason fraternal organizations pledge the latter generally on human sacrifice and all sorts of engineered mayhem.
In effect, the mainstream is largely kaleidoscopic and self aggrandizing, fraternal organizations highly focused and predatory upon the former. The mainstream is thus regarded as a prey species by the more formidable solidarity pledged METRIC.
