do you want some sort of award because aviation engineers deal with higher-stakes than book publishers? well done, you have a special industry code ('you' being a vague term for engineers in general; i don't recall you doing anything so crucial) because cutting corners kills hundreds of people
. i like working in the culture industry where the stakes are amiable and everyone more or less enjoys their jobs, dipshit. very strange humble brag.
and the report specifically mentions engineers cutting corners. nobody held a gun held to their head over these things. and, even if they did, you'd think that an engineer with an overbearing manager would whistleblow or, er, quit ... considering hundreds of peoples' lives are at risk
. what a noble race! blameless, as ever.
junior engineers at theranos, for e.g., in the medical-diagnostics field eventually blew the whistle on their bullshit technology, because it was risking harm to people's lives. and theranos had an extremely aggressive confidentiality clause/legal team going after anyone who so much as peeped disagreement/skepticism.
but no, enGineEriNg mAstEr raCe can't possibly do anything wrong. i bet all the managers at boeing have history and literature degrees and went to princeton and yale!!!
