Actually, it’s not: “At the end of the day, OOP and FP each have their appropriate use cases. Neither is a panacea.”
There’s no point in defending. OOP and FP are tools in a toolbox. You use them as appropriate. The “defence” only has meaning if you think either tool is superior to the other; it only has meaning if you think either one of them should be used universally, which of course would be utter nonsense.
