As we have already pointed out, a econo-socio-political system can be based on social relationships, liberal institutions or on man himself. Consider this from Tomberg’s doctoral dissertation.
A system, an order may be as useful and good as can be — ultimately it depends on people, who abandon, reliquish, reinterpret, falsify, or simply betray it. And the number of a system’s (loyal or disloyal) “guardians” need not be large. Often it takes only a few dozen people to destroy a generally recognized order. The big problem does not consist so much of which system to choose and how to organize the world, but of how and where to find people, who are truly of good will and who can be trusted. For ultimately, we are dealing with the element of trust. There is no system — neither domestic nor international — that can exist without trust as its final, practical, basic substance. For even with ten levels of control, there still must be — as the eleventh level — a final instance of control which can be trusted.
