this is very interesting--

I know that California has had a weird impact on the entire nation.

What I have come to observe as the "California mentality" is a dangerous one--

even among those who consider themselves to be conservatives.

There is a sense of entitlement and superiority. This is not something I have viewed politically so much as privately. Those I know who have done damage are people with whom I have had familial contact; they are, by and large, neo-conservatives, war-mongers, and they have taken advantage of the high cost of housing in California to buy expensive homes cheaply in other states--

I have come to see that there is something wrong with the entire perspective of such people--

They believe they are working hard, because they sat on real estate at the right time--

but maybe that's not what is being discussed here--

They are also very litigious.

As I generalize--

Not everyone who has lived in California and left, however, has these characteristics; I do know that.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
