Personally I still cannot believe they were allowed to put aircraft into civilian use that appear to have ignored safety lessons learned over the space of 50+ years ...

It rather sounds as thought their management systems are so dysfunctional that they didn't actually realize that that was what they were doing. It must be airliner design 101 to have multiple redundancy in all control systems -- but MCAS has no redundancy at all.

Whoever designed it didn't know the rules of the game, and nobody was assigned to check their work.
