i suggest you look up that word, it doesn't mean what you think it does (hint: it'd apply to us if we expected others to care about security whereas we wouldn't care at the same time, i think even you admitted that that's not the case ;).
It's absolutely the case. Do you know or care who and how produces electric power for your home? Do you know or care abut who and how pumps water? Do you know and care about all the food sources (and all the chemicals used in this process) ? Or do you pick one narrow form of security (IT-related stuff) and assume all other forms of security are somehow less important? Why do you think it's more important and why do you think other should care about GMO less then they care about out-of-bounds access in the Linux kernel?
