I don't think that OO in general is "ill conceived" but I do agree that is by far overused and misused since it was "invented".
There are certainly benefits to encapsulate both code and data, and to some degree, abstraction can help to make code more readable and thus maintainable. But in far too many cases, this leads nowadays just to a royal mess where people do this ad nauseam, creating totally unreadable and incomprehensible code (beside the original coder, at the time they creating that piece of code) and are even proud of it.
It's simply has turned into "too much of a good thing"...
