I wouldn't take such precautions because I believe them to be futile and
immoral, am I really that unusual?

Gee, I can't understand why today's programmers whiting operating systems
don't just put in a top level goal saying don't let their machines be taken
over by hostile programs. Computer security problem solved!

No of course not, because 2 +2 is in fact equal to 2 and I can prove it:
Let A = B
Multiply both sides by A and you have
A^2 = A*B
Now add A^2 -2*a*B to both sides
A^2 + A^2 -2*a*B = A*B + A^2 -2*A*B
Using basic algebra this can be simplified to
2*( A^2 -A*B) = A^2 -A*B
Now just divide both sides by A^2 -A*B and we get
2 = 1
Thus 2 +2 = 1 + 1 = 2
