Vox: Stop calling them “accidents”
Vox.com has an interview with Jessie Singer, author of the new book There Are No Accidents.
... Singer argues that basically everything we consider to be an “accident” — be it car accidents or fatal fires or workplace injuries — are in fact not accidents at all.

Larger systemic forces, shaped by corporations and governments, intersect to create vulnerabilities that we don’t all share equally. Anticipating and reducing those opportunities for human error is the key to preventing needless death.
