Agreed, it's so painfully obvious it's problematic. Human psychology has an interesting habit of ignoring obvious painful truths, as Margaret Heffernan details in Willful Blindness: Why We Ignore the Obvious at Our Peril.
"We turn a blind eye in order to feel safe, to avoid conflict, to reduce anxiety, and to protect prestige. But greater understanding leads to solutions, and Heffernan shows how-by challenging our biases, encouraging debate, discouraging conformity, and not backing away from difficult or complicated problems-we can be more mindful of what's going on around us and be proactive instead of reactive."

Precisely why we subconsciously ignore difficult truths, because confronting them would require surmounting seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
