I stand by the original assertion. 99% people who buy an ticket to fly somewhere do so based on blind faith. They know nothing evidenced-based regarding aircraft design, manufacturing, repair, navigation, weather, or flight training. The same thing goes for patients as they interact with the medical system.

You can perhaps generalize it to say that they have faith in society to ensure that these specific systems work as they are intended...but it's still blind, or next to blind, faith.
