'America is stuck between two historical eras. That’s the best way to understand the strange, unprecedented politics of Trump, the political polarization and paralysis of government, the deep dissatisfaction of public opinion, the lack of trust in all institutions! The post-Industrial era that blossomed in the 2nd half of the 20th century is over. That world of secure manufacturing jobs, generally homogenous societies and respected traditional institutions is done. And while it’s over from a historical perspective... too many people are hanging onto a worldview and way of life that is fast slipping away. The other half of the problem is that almost no one knows what will replace it. California Is the Future. Trump is the last gasp of the conservative era and will bring down Republican rule. What’s coming next is in California right now.'
