To be fair, every language or implementation of a language has its weak

Well, I used to program in C, but after I started worked with Python, I
think that C sucks.

I completely agree.
This is the main reason I do program in C++ using all good idioms
(references, RAII, smart pointers, state-of-art design patterns...)
