I think we have very different ideas about what "safe" means.

Your argument seems to be: As long as the programmer really knows the
ins and outs of a language's complicated constructs, the programmer
can take steps to avoid getting themselves into trouble; and therefore
that language is "safe".

By this argument, what languages AREN'T safe?
