If spanking is useful in creating better adults why aren't more adults better?

Over 70% of parents now spank, in the 80's 90% spanked. When something bad happens involving a child people are quick to say the child needs their "butt whipped" "spanked", etc. So since most of the population were spanked why hasn't this created better generations? If spanking is the solution wouldn't we have a nation of well behaved teens and 20 somethings?

    Simply google it, there are page after page, after page of statistics showing that the minimum is about 60% with the highest studies showing 90%. Of course varying between studies. Read too many links to leave just one.
