That’s a sign of a lack of imagination. Photography, like any other art, can also create a new reality, can express feelings, can exaggerate a perspective, can transform by leaving out or framing, and can even indulge in flights of fancy. Then I would advise you to "throw up your hands, put your camera on the shelf, and take up another hobby." In the meantime, leave the rest of us alone. We're happy making photos in ways that you don't understand. Guess what, Alan, the fifties are long gone as is the 20th Century. No more segregated drinking fountains, gay people can get married, and the "average guy" can post process to his heart's content. Many folks no longer play vinyl records on their hi-fis. History marches on. Adapt or don't.
