The Innocence of Negligence V Adverse Public Reactions To Sabotage & Terrorism

Do you have the expertise, knowledge or inquisitive mindset to really challenge official investigators, their reports and verdicts, of many serious accidents? If you do not, you will tend to accept official reports and place your trust in Expert Opinion. Should we be so trusting? Some experts are not independent and neutral. They have (hidden) dependencies.............

SABOTAGE - Its a Long Shot! - What Ever Next? God?
I have listed a series of accidents in this post, which have been blamed on negligence, incompetence and equipment faults. However, we can not ignore the fact that in the right hands and with the right knowledge, these accidents could have been acts of sabotage. Why on earth commit SABOTAGE? I'll let you ponder over the reasons why companies/people might be targeted.

Saboteurs do not deliver official public statements. They don't need to. The act is a message itself. Whoever they are targeting (individual/company) knows in advance or recognizes afterwards who is responsible.

We Want a Quiet Life - Controlling the Ignorant Mass
Blaming negligence on workers and faulty equipment leads to an entirely different emotional reaction from the public, in comparison with the alarm and anger stirred by acts of terrorism and known sabotage. If a government or company wants to Maintain the Peace and Profits, it will pursue a strategy of minimizing adverse public reactions and anxiety.
