React's not a silver bullet. And you're right to point out that problems are coming up because of React.
React came along and made making the UI layer of your app much simpler. No need to worry about event handlers and tying your business logic to the DOM (data attributes anyone?). You could whip up some components, use React's state to manage UI logic and you'd be all set. It was a breath of fresh air, and to many, it still is.
