Summary/Abstract: The trust is considered as a modern phenomenon – a device, a mechanism for interiorization (Deleuze) of the external control in individual behaviour and social interactions. Industrial manufacture gradually releases the individual from all his qualities and communications and transforms them into an abstract working capacity. The trust serves as connection of this machine system’s resource both to the machines and to other individuals integrated into the machine system as „an industrial organisation“ (Parsons). Globality emancipates trust and completely deprives individuals of means of orientation in the artificial technological and information environment-network. It makes them mistrustful again, unable neither to foresee, nor to find directions in the new environment – transforms them into users which activity is subject of utilization in the information technologies’ system regardless of the purposes and desires of the users themselves. On the contrary, it starts to design randomly such purposes in its devices and networks. Reliability and safety of the network becomes its main objective, subordinates human desires and requirements.
