Mathematica is a functional logic language and it should be
programmed in functional style.

Since the functional concept is much more powerful than the
"object oriented" style, you you should use the functional 

Since Mathematica is optimized to handle functional logic
definitions very efficient you should use functional logic

Roman Maeders book "The Mathematica Programmer II" has some
packages for object oriented programming, manly to show
how laborious and useless this concept is.
