I don't understand what you're trying to say. Anytime anyone talks about C++ they use these weird, dramatic metaphors. How is it a false sense of security? Why is it wrong? Please explain it to me like I'm stupid.

 

There are much better ways of handling memory management in C++ (compared to C), and those ways are important because it can be a lot harder to keep track of who has which pointer to what.

 

In other words it's not 'wrong' in the sense of not compiling and running. It's 'wrong' in the sense that someone may try to slap you if they catch you doing it.
