"The idea behind languages like rust is you accept that mistakes happen and any performance hit you take is a worthwhile tradeoff for less debugging and reduce risk of these catastrophic bugs."

I hope that's not the idea behind Rust. There is no reason why correctly written code should run slower than buggy code. The code should not be bug fixing itself at run time, it should be correct at compile time.
