Sure, for authorities such as courts of law. It is not about choosing either your POV or one that says that “everyone is guilty.” There is plenty of room in the middle for healthy suspicion and nobody can credibly make the case that anyone is above suspicion anymore. I would rather be an “eternal cynic” than believe in a fraud and be eternally let-down by those who are wrongly put on a pedestal. As Lily Tomlin noted, no matter how cynical I get I can never keep up.
