The problem of discussions with most people about OO is that they
simply have this different POV. They have their many-thousand SLOC
large code blocks in mind.

OO becomes senseless when your programs are small and simple.

You have the separation in the operation system then. Single
independent programs take the place of classes. You can combine them
to larger programs.

Then you have real reusability!

But most programmers don't reach this POV, hence they keep coding fat,
bloated software crap.
