Apple opened pandoras box by implementing its CSAM scanner. The basic concept is not new, it's how law enforcement and other attackers have "broken" end-to-end encryption for years.

But as mentioned, previously it was attackers, not the software itself using such methods.

But there is no way of going back. Law makers now know it can be deployed. It was deployed. So it'll be deployed again. And since we didn't see a majority of apple users destroy their devices, it's even accepted.
