Could you expand this answer to cover the reasons why people might use
Pascal rather than assembly language? Your argument seems to advocate
using the lowest level language available...

I'm a big fan of compact code and language features that promote it.
Give me "StringList.SaveToFile()" any day over the laborious code
that starts "var F:TextFile;"
