In particular: in this paper somebody FINALLY goes after the “GOTO considered harmful” thing which has driven me nuts forever. The POWER of computing is precisely in the GOTO – that is, you have the flexibility to do anything.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0304397597001540 Thank you — i knew SOMEBODY had to be going in this direction — pointing out this error of theoretical computer science — a political stance of “no GOTO” and all that represents… the focus on the aesthetic of code abstracting it away from the metal it runs upon… contracting its power into only-that-which-can-be-controlled.
