I've recently finished the book "Flying Blind: The 737 MAX Tragedy and the Fall of Boeing", and it was actually pretty depressing to read how a focus on pure "shareholder value" and private enrichment of executives can quickly destroy most of the value of one of the biggest and highly innovative companies. Reading about the destruction of technical excellence in favor of a race to the bottom for short term market gains should be a cautionary tale for all companies that are currently technical leaders. Learn from history how easily that can change.
PS: Now that I know more about the behind-the-scenes reasons for the 737 Max accidents and resulting deaths, I will personally avoid flying in any of them in particular, and generally try to stay away from Boing aircraft while the company is further slipping into even shoddier QA practices.

Britain and the rest of the world face a set of almost intractable challenges, ecological (including climate), economic and social. Yet political leaders with few exceptions are failing to propose the actions and policies that could address the scale of this pancrisis.
Here though is an alternative initiative, a kind of alternative manifesto with a portfolio of illustrative policies

Stop The Damage!
Build a Better Future!
