I find it very common, to prevent people from doing the right thing using false safety concerns.
We have to wear the (COVID19) mask for people's safety.
We have to keep the block size small for network safety.
Majority of people wear a mask, while the global economy is crushing with huge consequences.
Majority of people use BTC while the network fees get extremely high, confirmations too slow, destroying the reputation of Bitcoin as a scalable financial network.
