Despite what Twitter and censored forums would have you believe, Bitcoiners all around the world are seeing the writing on the wall -- high fees and slow transactions will not make for a lasting store of value.
I found a Reddit thread today titled How much longer are we going to pretend we don't have an issue? that gives us a look into the uncensored mind of an average Bitcoiner. It isn't pretty.
People are in a panic, and rightfully so, because they have been deceived and manipulated by Core and they're realizing it might be too late to correct course. They're even starting to lose faith in the false god of Lightening Network.

Some of us did everything in our power to get even a modest 2 MB hard fork by now. No success. Now the high fee disaster scenario is here. Fascinating to see how these users are responding to that.
It will be interesting to see whether there is a point where things get so bad that Core is ever willing to do a hard fork. It's too late for some of us - I'm not going back to Core. Those people do not share my values.

Even if they increase the block size, they will never allow it to be determined by the free market. Their entire business model is based on coercion.

These people don't realize: Segwit2x was the businesses, entrepreneurs, and competent early adopters' attempt to keep *them* alive. The big-block community has been extremely passive and flexible for years - far too flexible, and I suspect that's because of a strong libertarian non-aggression streak in us. But make no mistake: we were compromising with them, not the other way around.
2mb was honestly far too small a blocksize increase, but it was a desperate attempt to keep Bitcoin alive and intact for everybody. Now, as Ryan said, it's too late. S2X was our last effort to help these people. Not only was S2X rejected - due to misinformation and propaganda - but many in the Legacy community waged personal attacks on us. So, it's over. Finally. We have our coin; they have theirs. We're about to see what happens when the two visions compete.
For the record, I hope that when Bitcoin Cash dominates, and we see a gigantic influx of post-Core supporters, we do not make the same mistakes and compromise with fools. Bitcoin Cash has a very clear vision, and if we start hearing the same idiotic arguments, we have to take a different approach. Small-blockers are welcome to use our technology; they are not welcome poisoning the community or complaining about the vision.
The vision is clear; it's what we're unified around, and if you don't like it, use another coin.

I remember they were calling 2X "bizcoin" as a derogatory. As if there's something wrong with doing business. Isn't that what one is supposed to do with money. I guess it's a communist coin now. Transactions will be punished.

Thinking about Core increasing blocks, they denied a well organized effort to move to 2MBs. In the unlikely case they decide to do an emergency fork, not sure miners will support it. A new fork could further divide Core. Tethers are the only thing that keep miners on BTC, not sure how long they could keep printing. In any case at some point price needs to correct and miners will switch to BCH.
