I wish I could agree with you but I cant... most people are still sheep content to do what their told.
Okay maybe that's not entirely true. they elect people to office hoping they will fix whats wrong. They just don't want to be bothered, left alone to take care of their own families and live their lives.
People always say, they never saw it coming... well the signs were there they were just to busy to notice. until it jumps up and bites them on the butt...

A lot of "normal" people have seen fifty percent or more of their paper wealth evaporate over the past year and a half or so so, as the stock market has sapped their 401(k)s of vitality and the housing market has slumped. They may not be living in any materially different way...still slurping their starbucks lattes, heading off to the cube farm, and polishing their McMansion countertops...but they know they are poorer than they expected to ever be again, and they are now starting to realize that despite what Cramer of "Mad Money" says, the value of their holdings isn't coming back soon. That's got to be opening a lot of eyes. And nothing opens eyes like layoffs. Those lucky enough to still have jobs have probably at least seen a couple of victims of axe-swings among their friends and collegues.
