XKCD "Sandboxing Cycle" is an evergreen slide when talking about abstraction layers.

It's not just security... abstractions are inherently leaky, which means sometimes you want to access the layers below, which voids many of the benefits of the abstraction.

i just realized that programmers would design buildings like a Chutes and Ladders game because they wouldn’t know how tightly to couple each floor to one another

It makes the application to run slower as more hardware resources are needed to support the abstractions. And it's not a "fair play" for exploiters, just because it makes the process tedious, but not better; there's one more step: add a sandbox over another sandbox over anoth...

Also, software design reflects organization structure.

Also 25-6 is very inefficient without a slide, and we need that particular adressing because we can't afford a new printer on the third floor.

There's some not-that-stretched analogies in the US building code, regarding stair slope, stair width, fire doors, escape exits, etc. For fire prevention purposes floors intentionally have their coupling reduced.

I worked in the past for a VC that sent us to evaluate IT departments because they claim that IT is reflection of the entire business :-)
