Good post. I think it's also important to remember that these elitist, fashionable mindsets are part of a hacker-news-proggit-bubble that only really represent a tiny fraction of the actual industry. They are arguably pretty important for the forward momentum of our industry, but need to be taken with a grain of salt.

It's easy to start thinking that certain ideas or technologies are past their use-by date when you are surrounded by a strong, unified voice that is always looking for the next big thing. The reality is that the vast majority of the software world is out there working on super legacy codebases that even make rails itself look shiny and new.
