Enough people will, until it directly affects them and/or loved ones. Then they’ll want something done but by then it will be too late to change course.
It’s likely already too late to do anything but let it burn through. In the beginning there were too many refusing to abide by CDC protocols, too many saying this was no worse than the flu, too many openly denying reality by holding mass gatherings and even COVID parties. There’s a reason 23% of the world’s COVID dead are American although we are only 4.7% of the world’s population.
Individualism is a fine thing, and necessary. But too often it degenerates into selfishness, egotism, and unwarranted entitlement. We are going to Karen ourselves into many more hundreds of thousands of deaths.
