Two ways to defend the status quo

Deny the problem. Minimize it, make up data, distract from the conversation, make people feel like hypocrites, and emphasize the convenient and persistent elements of what is in place.

Acknowledge the problem but point out that it’s now far too late to do anything about it.

Neither is true, helpful or generous. Both happen all the time. Call it out when you see it.
