i think its definitely true that the message of Good Country People is that people cannot be trusted, but I think it also says that it is OK to be kind to someone without trusting. Mrs. Hopewell doesn't trust Manley enough to buy a bible, but she still gives him dinner.

I think the story also says that people are more alike than they think. Hulga was philosopher and believed she was better in a way than everyone else. However, she was tricked in a situation when she believed to have controll over it, knocking her down a few knotches. This showed that she was more similar to the people around her than she believed.
