Or the mandatory use of objects in many languages, including Java. All of these are ways of taking freedom away from the end user "for their own good".

The history of hierarchies seems to show that all religious error consisted in making the symbol too stark and solid, and was at last nothing but an excess of the organ of language."
Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
