I survived without them in the UK for 32 years & Switzerland for a further 20 years, my mother is still alive at 90 & has never had one.

Working in the film business we often had 64 amp & 128 amp 3 phase, never had a RCB connected.

Plenty of people will cut the earth connection as they can be a pain in the arse tripping too often, I think that is more dangerous. Sound men on film sets always cut the earth on their extension leads because of hum
RCD's don't need an earth connection to switch of when electricity is leaking through your body

If they trip to often than people should start cleaning their equipement.
