Thank goodness the Royal Commission in Australia didn't resign themselves to inaction on the basis of no one caring
That is completely different. Those are violations of existing laws that people already care a great deal about.
It is not the same as people knowing of an issue and not caring by any stretch,
You never know what can happen when you inform the public on a given issue.
The public already know about the blood issue for instance, it's one of the only things people know about JWs, but I can't remember much public outcry to the point of making any changes.
People don't care about many issues, especially those that appear to be of the people's own making and choices. The only interest is the curiosity that people can be so stupid.
