"personal rights are not the "be all and end all""
And single anomalies like these are no reason to cast doubt on them.
If pilots with mental problems crashing planes were regular occurrences, you might have a point.
Probably the greatest risk of human error in the aviation industry comes from cabin staff being forced to work too many hours and companies failing to allow enough checking time between flights in order to keep planes in the air for as long as possible in order to make the most profit (I've heard it referred to as 'the Raynair Syndrome'), but I really can't see you questioning the profit motive in the industry - can you?
Rather, you would seek to undermine one of our basic rights.
In the end, personal rights are all we've got to protect us from a predatory system that looks on the general population as a purse-filler.
