Trust the people who are in power right now -- even if you don't know them very well (or know them too well!). They know more about what is going on that you do, and are capable of steering things in the right direction. Questioning authority is usually a smart thing to do, but right now it will only be a waste of time. Doubting someone based on your suspicions is not the same as doubting someone based on their past actions. Give them a chance -- they will impress you.
