Thanks for writing this.
It is something I have been saying myself for decades as the use of frameworks rose, basically they are a dependency you tie your project to.
You can't beat knowledge of a language for stability, future proofing and sharing work with other developers.
I agree that libraries can be handy and help to compound complex common tasks.
What they do enable is for people to get on the ladder and learn quickly without knowing how to code, coding for non-coders if you like. So that can be one benefit I guess.
But you need the coders with the language experience to write and maintain the framework in the first place.
