I think the education in our domain is doing this mistakes, they present the programming as a copy of the world and only present 1 paradigm, OOP.

Software is not the real world and shouldn't try to replicate it, it should solve real world problems in its own way.

Rant over, sorry 🙏.

PS: you can use immutability in any language, the degree of was is different though, even JS has a famous immutable library.

I totally agree! I don't know why people are still teaching this idea that you should simulate the world.

We are mostly programming Information Systems: they gather, process, record, and transmit data. They're not simulations!
