Yes, at the end of the day, it boils down to "intelligibility" and
hence trust (you wouldn't send your taxes to a babbling idiot, even

You *can* build  a secure distributed application from trusted components,
but the element of trust is crucial. Even in pure capability systems, 
there have to be trusted components that create the capabilities.
