 Secure Software: Oxymoron?

"And this takes me to my destination: Maybe we are writing code as securely as we can. Maybe the flaw is so fundamental to the way that computer science and modern programming have evolved that it is essentially unsolvable using the current framework. Will making software companies liable make their code more secure if software programming as a science is inherently “brittle?” Will enforcing good coding habits ensure that software is more secure?"
