And this reflexive hostility to the perceived right is driven just as much by ego as any other.
In a population of 7B people, at steady state, on the order of 100M die every day. (With the population growing fast, the number is probably smaller.) At +300K/day, that is an extra 100M deaths in a year, or >2x. I think we would have heard about that, even in the US where people are routinely in the dark about foreign events.
