By leading through publicised example - making more information about
how to make purchasing decisions with those things in mind available.

If you wrote a guide to buying vacuum cleaners in the UK from an
ethical-hacker perspective, I'd certainly be influenced by it.

There will always be nerds who refuse to get involved in any kind of

minds that are good at abstraction systematic thinking are less good
at abstract empathetic thinking. MBTI, Cohen, etc.
