There seem to be two prevailing views on this:

0) OOP is the way to do absolutely everything.
1) FP is the way to do absolutely everything.

I'm going to propose a "third way":

OOP is best for some projects and FP is best for others.

The "trillion dollar mistake" was not OOP per se but the notion that one size somehow fits all whatever the nature of your application. It's a mistake that many seem to be hell-bent on replicating with FP.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
