Maybe there should be a warning, similar to a stall warning, before the MCAS system makes any changes. However, if I understand correctly, you can turn the system off and fly manually whenever you need to.

Doesn't mean the plan is designed "stupidly". It's just a feature that might have unintended consequences if an inexperienced crew is flying. We still don't know if either of these situations had ANYTHING to do with MCAS and even some of the witness information from Ethiopia seems to indicate something else was happening on the plane just prior to it crashing (debris falling from plane, plane making very unusual noises, etc). Need more info from the data recorders to even see if there is anything remotely related to a control issue.
