Maybe people used to drive without them, but people also used to put their kids in the back of the station wagon with no seatbelts. Times have changed. People these days drive like idiots. If I a set of snow tires will allow me to avoid on of them, it was money well spent.
AWD absolutely does help you turn. Anyone telling you RWD turns better in snow than AWD is completely and utterly wrong. It's not even a discussion point. That's insanity.
