"Many computer scientists have fallen into the trap of trying to define languages like George Orwell's Newspeak, in which it is impossible to think bad thoughts. What they end up doing is killing the creativity of programming." --Larry Wall

If the software in question is running a heart pacemaker or the engine controls of the aircraft I'm flying in or the car I'm driving, I would very much rather have the creativity of programming killed than me or my family.
