I watched a western, (when I was sick on Tuesday), that included a crooked sheriff. The man who owned the saloon gave him bribes to look the other way. He did nothing when the saloon stayed open all night and the crooked gambling robbed the locals of everything. It wasn’t that the sheriff didn’t see what was going on; he just chose to look the other way.
Ezekiel 12:2, “Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, which has eyes to see but does not see, and ears to hear but does not hear. For they are a rebellious house.” Modern English Version

Ezekiel 12:2, “…you live among rebels who could see the truth if they wanted to, but they don’t want to….” New International Version
Money is what keeps people from seeing the truth and understanding the consequences. We are no longer bribed, they just threaten to cut off funding to control us. We have truly become calloused.
Matthew 13:15, “For this people’s heart has become callused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise, they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I will heal them.” New International Version
In the movie, the sheriff was fired and the people ran the saloon keeper out of town. That was the consequence of their rebellion. What consequence are we facing?
