C - the leech theraphy of coding. It will never go away!
Let the witch doctors speak!
C is good, very good.
It doesn't even have Modules, FFS.
Can you suggest a language that A: solves all the possible programmer errors that are possible in C while running on the bare metal and not inside of a virtual machine

You can write bullet proof code in assembler, you just need to know what you're doing.
You also need a very large team, lots of time and lots of money in that case. Nope, you won't get them.
C does not have the exclusive license on bad or insecure code.
"WIth that kind of plus, we can only win."
Code which needs to run particularly quickly and efficiently may require the use of a lower-level language, even if a higher-level language would make the coding easier
