I live in a country and I don't trust it's government. It's run by power hungry corrupt out of touch rich people who care about their own self interests and clinging on to power. They will say anything to keep ahold of it whilst not really solving the deeper problems in society.
It depends who the manufacturer is. I think I'd like to do a lot of research before committing to anything to minimise the chances of buying from someone untrustworthy.I'm not sure I'd trust a private company either, to be honest.
Ethics only matter to the extent that they are profitable, to most companies.
