On High Level Languages

We keep lowering the bar for technical prowess, it seems; if something has
the potential to be used “wrong”, high-minded designers remove the offending
syntax rather than find or train competent programmers. This is why Java
removes pointers (among other things) — it’s not that pointers aren’t
useful or efficient, it’s that they require discipline from programmers.
— Scott Robert Ladd
