Spare us the conspiracy story.
The ground system is used to hold metallic equipment to earth potential in case of induction, lightening or insulation failure.
The ground system is not supposed to carry load current.
The insulated load conductor we call the neutral is not dead , it's live but the neutralheld close to true earth potential by the ground system. This also prevents the secondary side of the transformer from floating hundreds or thousands of volts above earth potential.
The triplex overhead service supply would never be allowed today but is "grandfathered" and used. Much like the two prong receptacles with same sized plug blades.Much better is an overhead quad or quad/four wire underground. Thing is most folk just want the cheapest way of making the lamps light up.
