Your argument overlooks the portion of the populace who did not support any of the parties or programs involved in this debacle - in most situations they are the majority. It doesn't matter if individuals understand the likely consequences and oppose the policies; or if they understand little until their butts are bitten; or if they hide from understanding because it's just too difficult or scary. When the shock hits, they are victims.
