When men share in the prince's swollen pride, they do not notice his deprivations," as Mansfield comments. 52 Machiavelli's conclusion here is entirely consistent with his view of politics as a realm of appearance. Camillus may have considered his virtue to be godlike, but he should not have appeared in public as a man intent on "acting as a god. "53 Virtues must be matched to political necessity, to be maintained or suspended temporarily as the case requires. Magnanimity is not a virtue appropriate in all circumstances, but a mode of conduct to be displayed when the occasion demands.

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. Political commitment for Brutus is a commitment of character. What is brought to politics is not a useful ability or skill, not a specific familiarity with power or a capacity to achieve ends efficiently, but the individual force of a stainless reputation, one that is disinterested, honorable, and without ambition.

The identity of this "public measure" will be a recurrent theme. Political agents who experience moral guilt for actions performed on our behalf have to regain a public world if they and we are to recognize their remorse. Exploration of moral character reveals the perspectives of those faced with conflicting loyalties, with choosing which is the lesser of two evils or which moral value outweighs another. How trust begins, how it is sustained, and how its breach might be survived are discovered not by reference to an abstract starting point but in the narrative of a human life.
