Example text

In the forum of politics, the qualities of nobility that would normally warrant trust divide character against itself, so rendering trust suspect and unsure. If the task is to examine excellence of character and to ask how it can provide a basis for trust, then we might want to look at an example like Brutus in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. His nobility was essential to his character; his motive was an honest concern for the public good. ' "6 What Antony sees is not just a moral quality leading to political error, but a man who has struggled with who he inescapably and morally is.

Kurt Baier describes the shared practice of judging character in a way that brings out these points: "The function of judgements of character is to acquaint members of the moral community with how well given individuals have, in the opinion of their peers, performed as moral agents. Such information is important for the formation of trust and distrust, without which morality could not work. "4 As moral character displays identity and not simply an unwelded collection of attributes and actions, it can be publicly recognized and judged, thus providing a basis for trust and distrust.

But political morality reveals more complex antinomies. What is it to trust the noble who draw the moral limits to politics in terms of self-sacrifice' who may not demand as much of others as they do of themselves? By contrast, what is it to put our faith in "the delusive plausibilities of moral politicians, "58 to trust those who are prepared to sacrifice the lives of others for the public good, who are prepared to dirty their hands? For Martin Hollis: "Politics is for foxes and we cannot really complain if those we appoint to be dishonest then do what is asked of them.
