It should be noted that no ethically-trained software engineer would ever consent to write a "DestroyBaghdad" procedure. Basic professional ethics would instead require him to write a "DestroyCity" procedure, to which "Baghdad" could be given as a parameter.

- Nathaniel S. Borenstein - From Programming As If People Mattered, and quoted in The Software Conspiracy, chapter 5, page 136.
