Officially the helpful (not ) intro to the rust programming language is

“Rust is a curly-brace, block-structured expression language. It visually resembles the C language family, but differs significantly in syntactic and semantic details. Its design is oriented toward concerns of “programming in the large”, that is, of creating and maintaining boundaries – both abstract and operational – that preserve large-system integrity, availability and concurrency.

It supports a mixture of imperative procedural, concurrent actor, object-oriented and pure functional styles. Rust also supports generic programming and metaprogramming, in both static and dynamic styles.”

What a load of old codswalop. What we need are non geeks to design and write languages so the common man can retool up like using tools used to be. Letting the world be described by geeks is dangerous and only beneficial to cardigan manufacturers.
