I'm also not speaking for myself, but my uncle's butler thinks that JS just as bad a habit as good old BASIC or PHP were.
To answer your question: Just like BASIC or PHP, pure JS has only very underdeveloped I/O capabilities and needs its libraries and frameworks to actually do something without bloating up the code samples to enormous size.
