There were no silver bullets, there aren't and there won't be. IMHO, I'd bet you would never hear a construction contractor say "give me back my hammer". The value remains in the choice of the tools and methodology in order to solve a problem.

Of course the author's point of view is totally valid, and so the microservices trend is also valid, and so are solutions in-between. One size won't fit everyone and as with anything going blindly for any solution can cause trouble.
