The Two Californias

Victor Davis Hanson writes of how a lethal combination of elitist environmentalism and unenforced immigration laws have created a third world Apartheid state in rural, Central California. It truly is heartbreaking reading. This is the fruit of progressive leftism: societies living in squalor clinging to the government for their livelihood.

Two Californias

He writes,
California coastal elites may worry about the oxygen content of water available to a three-inch smelt in the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta, but they seem to have no interest in the epidemic dumping of trash, furniture, and often toxic substances throughout California’s rural hinterland.


We may speak of the richness of “diversity,” but those who cherish that ideal simply have no idea that there are now countless inland communities that have become near-apartheid societies, where Spanish is the first language, the schools are not at all diverse, and the federal and state governments are either the main employers or at least the chief sources of income — whether through emergency rooms, rural health clinics, public schools, or social-service offices.

Sad, sad state of affairs that is California. Progressive values and policies only destroy. Liberals want all the middle class to walk to work meanwhile the rest of the state is becoming a giant garbage heap.

I was right to leave when the going was good.
