So as a syllogism:
P1: GOTO is a jump;
P2: GOTO is bad.
C: Jumps are  bad.

And then by showing the conclusion is false, you believe you have
shown a contradiction? Try looking up "Affirming the consequent"!

GOTO is an /unstructured/ jump. Raise, break, continue, if, for and so
an are all /structured/ jumps.
