I tend to think of OOP as a Platonic philosophy, a way to express "ideal/pure Forms" and their inclusive/exclusive/hierarchical relations. I really like SOLID as an Aristotelian "techne," a set of principles for how to structure the creation, use, interaction, of the (necessarily imperfect !) instances of those "Forms."

While I see OOP as the best way to model hierarchies, I (currently) wonder how suited it is to typical modern multi-threaded apps driven by asynchronous events ... where any damn thing can happen any damn time OMG | :OMG:

Is it "right" to indict OOP with the charge of criminal mutability of state ... rather than indict the programmer who does not control access/mutability using the provided tools, such as ... in C# ... Linq, System.Collections.Immutable, and such pedestrian access modifiers as 'readonly ?
