Whether a source is trusted depends on the truster. An ID might be an
excellent trusted path for one person and not for another. For
example, my University of California ID. Indeed, I might sign a
photograph affidavit of identity for a friend of mine. People who
know me and know my signature would accept that as ID for the friend;
people who do not know me or do not know my signature should not
accept that as ID.
It is you that do not trust a Transnational Republic ID, and with good
reason. You shouldn't trust it, and neither should or would I. But
that does *not* mean that anyone who presents it is trying to trick
