Flight-control system for the 737 MAX omitted key safeguards

quote [ The engineers who created MCAS more than a decade ago for the military refueling plane designed the system to rely on inputs from multiple sensors and with limited power to move the tanker’s nose—which one person familiar with the design described as deliberate checks against the system acting erroneously or causing a pilot to lose control. ]

“It was a choice,” this person said. “You don’t want the solution to be worse than the initial problem.”

One syllable "duh" or kind of drawn out multi-syllabic "duh" with changes in pitch and intonation as you go?
