It goes hand in hand with not being able to repair your own car after doing your own mechanic work for 50 years because big business wants all my money so I starve to death while homeless.Sorry, but this one shoots straight over my head. I don't understand what you mean.
ETA: Black boxes are flight recorders on commercial airliners.
Black boxes aren't just for planes. They're now integrated into many types of vehicles. You may even have one in your car, though you don't know about it. About 90 percent of new cars have event data recorders (EDRs) that track the same kind of data as airplane black boxes. The EDR is ostensibly designed to maintain and monitor the car's safety system, but accident investigators can and do use EDR data to better understand wrecks ... and sometimes, to assign blame after an accident.
Black boxes help investigators determine what happened in an airplane accident. What's inside a black box and how does it record flight data?
ETA2: Most (not all) modern day "mechanics" are really just glorified parts changers. They don't repair anything, just replace.
