I've yet to see in about four decades of gaming, the astounding amount of caster dominance that people in this venue claim is prevalent as the Black Plague once was. Maybe it's the people I've gamed with, combined with my own gaming style when I myself run casters.
I think that part of it is that most people don't actually play at high levels. (I've only played in one campaign past level 12ish - back in 3.5, and it started at 6 & there was a campaign reason to skip another 2-3 levels later.)
Also - much of the caster dominance is based around rules manipulation which I don't see any DM I've met ever actually allowing.
The argument seems to be that because someone can write it up as a theoretical scenario, it MUST be omnipresent at the majority of campaigns at that level.
I'm playing Wrath of the Righteous at 15th level, and the dominant players at this point, are the Zen Archer monk and Archer Ranger.
