MCAS is more like lane keeping technology and auto braking

MCAS is more like lane keeping technology and auto braking on newer cars. Lane keeping is weird, its like the steering gets really heavy and feels almost like the car is steering in a rut in the road when actually the car is steering. Lane keeping does allow you to change lane if your positive enough, I guess if you where tired you'd just go with where the car is steering you. Looks like MCAS just kept on ever more forceful overriding the pilots despite their numerous positive control inputs.
