    Because that's how society works best? When you think about it, a good society is one of the fundamental reasons humans are so sucessful (working together), so you would think there would be a some sort of mantaining factor in keeping society coherent and working well. And that would be indoctrinating all newcomers to comform...

    A "good" society (one where the citizens worked as one) would easily overcome a disorganised and archaic "bad" one (one where all the citizens are.. well.. bad), hence only good ones (mostly) remain. Something like that anyway..
