What a great time it is for Boeing, as they spectacularly fail FAA investigations, a whistleblower calling out their scummery dies under Totally Believable Circumstances, and the door on one of their planes flies off on takeoff. Not… like the way the plane itself flies off, the door popped off the plane and- I mean you get it. I am not foolish enough to believe that Boeing is unique in its villainy, this is what huge corporations do, but that don’t make it not evil. I’m sure they’ll get away with all of this, there are no real consequences for big companies under late stage capitalism, whatever, let’s talk about the 747!
