I don't understand why some think the issue is 100% pilot or 100% manufacturer. Plenty of blame to be shared between the pilots, the airlines, Boeing, the FAA, and the world's other regulators that certify the MAX and license the pilots that fly the MAX. Airbus is also voicing concerns about global pilot training levels. But yes, the bulk of the blame goes to Boeing.

The issue is that this plane had a system that the pilots had not even been told about, which was putting in control inputs in the background causing the plane to dive. They only had a few seconds to figure out what was happening and unfortunately, this was not enough. You can't blame them for not knowing what to do when they had never been properly warned about what this system was and how it functioned.
The system also appears to have a fatal flaw, which is that it was hooked up to just one angle of attack sensor, which made it inevitable that sooner or later it would activate out of sequence. I still don't understand how Boeing or the FAA could sign off on that.
