They're different languages with different philosophies. C provides a set of very powerful and potentially dangerous tools (direct memory access and management, for instance), and does not police how you use them. Rust want you to carefully explain what you want to do with those tools via its ownership system, unless you opt for "unsafe".

Rust is like the safety mechanism on a sawblade that shuts off once it realizes it's cutting into your finger.
