This isn’t about minimalism, mind you; it’s about clarity. Expressing yourself so clearly that someone doesn’t have to perform any gymnastics to follow along with what you’re saying. The problem here is that a lot of writers think that the gymnastics is what makes for good writing

From the Author of emotion (css-in-js library).
Very wise words there.
I have huge respect for people like him that can put opinions in context and don't tell only a one sided story

Narrow down the problems you would like to solve and then ask yourself if CSS-in-JS is going to help you with those or avoid them altogether. Let’s pretend it will. Ok, now you’ve got a new set of problems you are going to learn how to solve and they are much more interesting than the problems that classical css presents, but you still have to learn how to deal with them. That takes time and energy that is precious in development cycles.

My larger point is to think about why we chose to use a library, framework, or pattern. Sometimes we create a problem for ourselves just so we can try something new. That is perfectly fine and its how we learn but just know that the context of that decision is everything. From my experience, the better route is to learn about this new thing and gain some understanding of the context of its use but do not force it but rather wait for a situation to arise when it is needed. Just be patient.

Why Don’t I Sell the Idea of Static Extraction with CSS-in-JS?

This, a thousand time this,

"However, having a style guide is never the end goal. Pattern libraries are created to make it easier for designers and developers working in a company to iterate on a product or to maintain a website in a consistent way. The end goal is to have an up-to-date style guide that is consistently used by both designers and developers in an organization, thereby getting results faster."
