I'm afraid that genie is never going back in it's bottle. These people were crazy before trump and even before he decided to run for president their voices were getting louder and louder. We're just gonna have to accept that henry kissinger was fucking right and there's masses of people too stupid to call human. I mean, fuck. These people are so stupid they willingly get their fellow man killed with their terrible ideologies and psuedoscience.Political spergs rose from GamerGate and Trump, but especially Trump and I hate it. The worst part is that it won't be for another 4 years until they calm down about "nazi drumpf", most likely. (call me optimistic)
These guys are unfortunately 100% correct. Take it from me, a fellow programmer.Sadly this is only going to get worse as more modern "developers" enter the workforce, because HTML/CSS/JS is easy and many of them are dumb. You won't see any middle managers vying for native applications (where reasonable) because they can shove a web-based prototype out the door and call it done in half the time, and they will be egged on by designers whose brains seem to operate on the CSS box model instead of neurons.
I'm not sure if java or rust compiled to webassembly is worse but with all these horrible attempts at replacing C coming up I'm biding my time until we get so abstracted nobody remembers how all the underlying tech works anymore. Fuck it, I think we've reached that point already.
