On Thursday, Forbes channeled Steve Sailer in a very insightful essay detailing the southbound spiral which the nation’s Golden State is slowly, gruesomely descending. So vast are the points made by author Michael Shellenberger, so darkly scintillating and bitingly true, that I fear that by trying to summarize or comment on the article at length will do it no justice, and in fact, might only serve to harm its integrity.
With that said, I will put the link here and suggest you read it, if you haven’t already. The sociological portrait it paints of this state is both frightening and spellbinding (in the same way one of Michael Bay’s cinematic spectacles is tragically bad). If you don’t live in California, don’t. If you do, get out or suffer the fools. Find amusement in the sour excrement of a one-party state that is wracked by its own smug ignorance and arrogance.
The closing paragraph sums up the piece’s trajectory.
And that starts with acknowledging that California’s tragic poverty and widening inequality aren’t the result of racist policies imposed from without but rather progressive policies embraced from within.
In fact, I would suggest this should be mandatory reading for all Democratic cogs residing in California. That is, if they can take the time to get away from their compulsive recitals of “let me count the ways I hate Trump” in order to actually think and consider, as opposed to reacting.
And I would suggest that California embodies the pitfall of being so fixated on equality and diversity that the robotic agenda legislated in support of said motivations ultimately structures a utilitarian dystopia that is ruthlessly and mechanically colorblind, leaving those with the inability to compete, lingering in the leftist dust.
Funny how California “works.”
