I find it interesting that you detract from C as an unsafe language by advocating for assembler.
He didn't advocate for assembler. It was reductio ad absurdum -- if fast is the only consideration, you would use assembler. Since you don't use assembler, fast is not the only consideration.
Since fast is not the only consideration, maybe you should consider safety. Or lower development cost (with which you can probably pay for the extra hardware you need compared to the C or assembler implementation at the same speed).
