If the aircraft is in a condition where there is much reduced force on 
the column due (presumably) to much reduced aerodynamic pressure on the 
HS and elevators, does this not constitute, if not loss of authority, 
then at least much reduced authority?

Once again, I'm trying to get at what kind of flight physics is going on 
with the 737 MAX airframe.
