It doesn't.
There are a lot of people that still think that physical punishment to kids helps build their character and prevents behavior problems and ADHD. I mean, it worked for centuries, right?

And many people who thing that secondary smoking is a "fabrication", and that they should be allowed to smoke wherever they want. Or to drive at 200km/h if their car can take it.

And there is a whole huge nation down south who thinks (most of them at least) that if every citizen would have a handgun in his home, this would reduce violence and crime.

Don't look for rationality when men and violence are involved. It's back to the cave.
