Discussion on: React is finally JavaScript

This post is so opinionated and poorly written.
The quote "Classes are the future of JavaScript because of React." is completely nonsense.
React was never the reason why people began to use classes, nor why they were even put in the ES spec.
Classes are "natively" supported, so how can they not be intended usage?
There's literally no context in this absurd post at all, as everything gets switched around.
Are we talking about React only, Node.js, ES3, ES6 or transpilers?
I mean what's the point?
