If the people can’t see what is happening they are blind. Or choose to be. There is a term for that which I forget–maybe “Cognitive dissonance”? Where people don’t see/believe/absorb the reality around them because it upsets their equilibrium, their sense of how things should be…. It would mean they need to change or act in a totally new and different way, have a 180′ turn in worldview–which is painful. That’s why predators can kill off their prey in plain sight of the herd (caribou in Alaska, or gazelles in Africa). The rest just go on feeding as if things are normal…
