After 25 years you should have stopped clinging to SRP by now.

It's a place to start ... not dogma.

With statements like that you are just feeding into the author's argument.

Clinging is a word you picked. My word is working. The code style employed everyday I write it, works perfectly. More importantly it's maintainable even years later. Proof? Yes, I have code running world wide every day. I use SRP and Open Closed exclusively. As well as Compositional techniques. If it ain't broke don't fix it right?

BTW the video is ridiculous to me.
