I would take issue w/the definition of assertion here. To me, an assertion is an instruction to a compiler or runtime to throw an error if a particular condition is not true. They are a means of making your assumptions explicit.

I do not disagree with your definition. It is in line with that described by G.B. Nelson in his paper and my discussions w/him about the idea.

This is Being Proactive: why start the program if the input is not copacetic?
