IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE DETAILS OF VULNERABILITIES
No matter how much you scream & shout, it has everything to do with the details of the vulnerabilities. The whole debate is about whether WL should simply publish the details or should they try to somehow assure, to the best of their ability and within reason, that before the details are published that the vulnerabilities are patched.
The problem is that many of the various software makers in question have contracts and/or agreements with the government and are already quite aware of many of the vulnerabilities. In some cases it's likely they were the ones that put them and/or left them there deliberately at government request.
Trying to secure written and binding assurances that the vulnerabilities will be patched before publication is only rational and logical, and also demonstrably far more conscientious of the public's security and safety than the software makers and the US government.
If the software makers and/or the US government refuses to address the vulnerabilities in a reasonable time and manner, then WL will have no choice but to simply publish the vulnerabilities and their details. Any negative consequences from that point forward from the vulnerabilities being exploited in the wild are solely the responsibility of those software makers and the US government.
As for the rest of your post, you suffer from normalcy bias. It's quite common and encouraged in the current climate. Try being better-read and informed. It's the only way people can keep their privacy and freedom. Those things *can* go away far easier and faster than you might think if the people do not fulfill their responsibilities to stay informed and educate themselves in history as well as current events.
