"The use of COBOL cripples the mind; its teaching should, therefore, be regarded as a criminal offense." --- Edsger W. Dijkstra 1975-06-18 _ACM SIGPLan Notices_ vol 17 #5
"Under no circumstances should the applications programming effort rest on 25-year-old so-called high-level languages.   As a lot, they are obsolete, although some of them, notably COBOL, are more obsolete than others.   Like obsolete chips, obsolete languages are non-competitive & result in spoilage of resources.   They have far-reaching detrimental effects because they adversely impact on human time, which computers are supposed to assist." --- Dimitris N. Chorafas 1986 _4th & 5th Generation Programming Languages_ pg x
"COBOL is an obsolete, highly unstructured language.   There are over 250 dialects of it, & COBOL ANSI itself has many versions." --- Dimitris N. Chorafas 1986 _4th & 5th Generation Programming Languages_ pg 45
"It is better not to use [micro-]computers than kill them by implementing COBOL -- apart from COBOL's being a deadly obsolete language.   Let me digress at this point.   The question is often asked: 'If COBOL is obsolete, then what should we do with the hundreds of thousands of COBOL programmers around the world?'.   That is a good question -- if turned the other way around.   IMO, we need not worry about the COBOL programmers, but we should train them in the new technologies.   As the computer becomes the central nervous system of companies, they should be put in a position to find work in the brain functions rather than in the leg-work of COBOL code.   I know a few ex-COBOL programmers who refused to return to COBOL even on an interim basis." --- Dimitris N. Chorafas 1986 _4th & 5th Generation Programming Languages_ pp 169-170
"With over 10 years of computer programming experience under his belt & hundreds of thousands of IT positions unfilled yearly, he [48 year old Alan Ezer] couldn't find a job to save his life... [His] extensive background should logically have been his trump card in a thirsty job market, his skill set an alphabet soup of languages dating back to the earlier COBOL, FORTRAN, C & SQL, along with the now in demand Java.   As it turns out, he says, his past knowledge was seen as unwanted baggage.   [He] explains, 'Where earlier knowledge would be revered in other fields, it is detested in the computer industry...'

"Thus saith the Lord GOD: Let it suffice you, O princes of Israel; remove violence and spoil, and execute justice and righteousness; take away your exactions from My people, saith the Lord GOD. Ye shall have just balances, and a just ephah..." --- Ezekiel/ יחזקאל/ Yechezqal 45:9-
"But beware and watch yourself very well, lest you forget the things that your eyes saw, and lest these things depart from your heart, all the days of your life, and you shall make them known to your children and to your children's children -- the day you stood before HaShem our God at Horeb/Choreb... Now this is the mitzvoth, the statutes, and the ordinances, which HaShem your God commanded (Moshah/Moses/Musa) to teach you, that you might comply-with/execute/carry-out/fulfill/do them in the land to which you go to possess... Hear, oh Israel; HaShem our God, HaShem is unique. And you must love HaShem your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words, which I command you this day, must be in your heart; and you must teach them diligently to your children, and must talk about them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the path, and when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you must bind them like a sign on your hand (so you will often see them), and as a sign on your fore-head between your eyes (so others with you will often see them). And you must write them on the door-posts of your house, and on your gates (so those who enter or pass by will see them)." --- Deuteronomy/ דברים/ deberim/debrim/words/statements 4-6

  "ON 1784 February 22 the 260-ton ship, the Empress of China, owned by a consortium headed by the New York financiar Robert Morris, sailed for Guangzhou (Canton) carrying ginseng and other products of the North American continent. Two years later it dropped anchor at an East River pier carrying a cargo of silk, tea, nankeens (trousers of a rough cloth), and porcelain dinnerware. The 30% profit that Morris and his partners realized on the voyage was more than sufficient to encourage others to undertake similar enterprises. Soon a small but thriving Far Eastern trade grew up. American merchants journeyed to China, where along with the merchants of other lands they settled in a kind of commercial ghetto called a 'factory' [where 'factors' had offices] or 'hong' outside the city walls of Guangzhou, the only port in China open to foreign trade. Forbidden from visiting the city or traveling in the countryside, they became in effect prisoners [of the Chinese government], free to leave but restricted as long as they remained. Business conditions were just as curious as daily life in the 'factory' at Guangzhou (Canton). For one thing, Chinese tariff schedules were neither 'regularized' nor published, making it possible for corrupt customs officials to charge what the traffic would bear... all business had to be conducted through the Co-Hong Merchants, a state-authorized monopoly that set prices and controlled all aspects of the trade carried on between China and the foreigners... These unusual conditions persisted through the decade of the 1830s. But in 1838 trouble developed between the foreign merchants at Guangzhou and the Chinese authorities... All foreign merchants, but especially the British [Scots], sold Turkish and Indian opium in China, where it found a ready market... opium purchases were draining the country of specie [coins made from precious and semi-precious metals]... workmen walled up the 'factory'... Troops surrounded them on the land side, while war junks took up menacing positions in Whampoa Harbor... American merchants, whose interest in opium had been minimal to begin with, agreed to the Chinese demand. The British [Scots], however, refused adn then left Guangzhou (Canton). Shortly after this, [company and] British naval forces bombarded several Chinese coastal cities [and took control of the nearby rivers]... Britain had decided it was time to open China more completely. At the same time Britain was determined to have all of the rules governing trade clearly spelled out in a commercial treaty between [the government in] London and [the government in] Beijing (Peking). The Americans who stayed in Guangzou (Canton) during the war profited hugely, picking up much of the trade formerly handled by their British competitors... Anglo-Chinese Treaty of Nanjing (Nanking) (1842). The British had won a large indemnity, taken Hong Kong [an island off the mouth of the river], opened 4 additional Chinese ports to trade, abolished the hated Co-Hong monopolies, required Bejing to publish a uniform tarif, and established the principle of extra-territoriality, which exempted British citizens from the jurisdiction of local Chinese laws... Secretary of State Daniel Webster grew mightily disturbed... Webster drafted a message to president John Tyler signed and sent to congress on 1842 December 30... Tyler urged congress to appoint a resident commissioner in China to handle all commercial and diplomatic affairs there. The appointment went to Caleb Cushing, a 44-year-old Whig congressman from Newburyport, MA... Treaty of Janjing (Nanking) and the Treaty of the Bogue (1843) [provisions] were granted freely by the Chinese to all other foreign nations trading in China... The Treaty of Wanghia s igned by Cushing and Kiying, the imperial commissioner and governor-general of Guangdong (Kuang-tung) andGuangxi (Kwangsi), [explicitly] granted the United States the same trade concessions Britain had won... And the Chinese granted the United States most-favored-nation status, meaning that if in the future the Chinese extended more concessions to any other [government] they would automatically accrue to the United States as well." --- Gerard Clarfield 1992 _US Diplomatic History to 1914; From Revolution to Empire_ pp170-172
