Why do pure damage champions recieve so absurdly high scaling defenses?

Ex. {{champion:238}} {{champion:107}} {{champion:114}} {{champion:164}} - builds PURE damage, can easily match any pure tank in terms of defensive stats. Why do "all-in" champions have so absurdly high scaling defenses? Why do tanks (ex. {{champion:201}}, {{champion:89}}, {{champion:44}} ) have so extremely poor scaling health and defensive stats in comparison, when they have nowhere near the base damage or scaling abilities by comparison? It's literally shaping the entire game - forcing non-damage dealers completely out of play - just so the damage dealers can afford to build full damage and survive a suicide bomber oneshot dive. Why is it kept like this? Why are we still in this burst damage / tanky assassin meta after three entire years?
