I don´t know why they want to bring random people up on the mountain in the first place, because it can´t be the money. I really wonder how much money would be left after such an expedition with all the things they have to pay for. It can´t be much.
But as soon as they are in that business, I guess it´s the competition. They want to be better and faster than anyone else and human safety takes a back set behind everything else. But as you have said, trying to bring up underprepared people up on the mountain is insane in the very first place. And it´s even more insane that is still going on today.

And the whole Mountain Madness team should have just gotten down from that mountain. Clearly the only ones, who where properly acclimatized, were Boukreev and the sherpas.

Yup. And problems seem to have escalated quite quickly after Base Camp.
