You sound like the Wizard of Oz - terrified of anyone peeking behind the curtain. Computers are not magic. There is absolutely no reason people should not learn the basics of how computers and software programs work, given their ubiquitous nature. I do not use programming in my professional life, but I took programming courses in high school and college. They taught me how to construct a logical argument, break a problem down systematically, and chain together processes to achieve a goal. These are skills applicable to every aspect of my life, computer-related or not. Why anyone would advocate ignorance over curiosity is beyond me.
