The Wall Street Journal reported today: Auto Maker's Chief Issues an Apology p. B6 (Nov 26, 2014):
Honda Motor Co's chief executive apologized for the auto maker's failure to report to US regulators more than 1,700 incidents involving death or injuries over the past decade, saying there had been 'multiple mishandlings'... Mr. Ito's apology comes as Honda is embroiled in one of the biggest safety recalls ever.
The latest Honda recall is over airbags that contain shrapnel capable of killing drivers and passengers.
Honda's management style seems a lot like TEPCO's.
Of course, American corporations are NO different. The other day I was driving on the 101 Freeway in Phoenix in rush hour traffic and I came across a woman in a newer vehicle at a complete standstill in the middle lane of the freeway. She was frozen, petrified in her car as traffic zoomed by on either side and as a line of vehicles piled up behind her. The drivers had avoided hitting her and were protecting her with their vehicles but she could not get out of her car. My heart ached for her terror but there was no way to help.
I suspect she survived that day unscathed, but how many other drivers will be injured or die because of faulty ignition devices in their GM cars?
The problem is SOCIOPATHIC corporations and captured regulators https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5hEiANG4Uk
Sociopathic institutions encode in powerful ways the worst aspects of the human condition and will surely be the mechanism of our destruction.
