Security and Javascript

I'd like to have some feedback from you. Do you agree with those points?

1) on most computers Javascript is enabled by default

2) This gives anyone a platform to play with parts of their owners

3) From a security point you are lost as soon as you give an adversary
the opportunity to control your system. 

4) Only non-active web content can guarantee that you keep control over
your equipment. 

And the last question: if all above is true, do we want to tell this to
the public? Does it help? Or would we be seen as being completely
