You simply cannot apply your political thinking (which I fully agree with) to free market consumer products. If manufacturer X makes product Y (say a type of cookie) that I find too crumbly, I don't have a right to make them change it, making it less crumbly. I do, however, have a right not to buy it and to look for an alternative. Or a closer analogy, if said cookie contains traces of nuts, even though it's a choc chip cookie, and I have a nut allergy, I still don't have a right to demand that they change their manufacturing methods just to suit my allergy. As for your dumbass airbag question - in many countries it would be illegal to [a] fit the driver airbag with an on/off switch (the passenger airbag is different, baby seats etc.) or [b] disable an airbag which came as part of the original equipment. Get over it. -- Grunff
