California of the Dark Ages

I recently took a few road trips longitudinally and latitudinally across California. The state bears little to no resemblance to what I was born into. In a word, it is now a medieval place of lords and peasants—and few in between. Or rather, as I gazed out on the California Aqueduct, the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Luis Reservoir, I realized we are like the hapless, squatter Greeks of the Dark Ages, who could not figure out who those mythical Mycenaean lords were that built huge projects still standing in their midst, long after Lord Ajax and King Odysseus disappeared into exaggeration and myth. Henry Huntington built the entire Big Creek Hydroelectric Project in the time it took our generation to go to three hearings on a proposed dam.

    Too many Mexicans.
    It’s not PC, but it’s true.

    • Sounds like a rough road ahead, not the California of the American Dream.

    Who thought turning California into Mexico would be a good idea?

    Would it not have been better to turn Mexico into California?

      Both ideas are bad because Mexico is a sh*thole and Mexico is a sh*thole because Mexicans made it one.
      Even the United States can only support a limited number of Mexicans.

        I read a book that was written in the early 19th century about a New Englander who took a trip to California. From his description of the Mexicans then you can see that nothing has changed in 200 years.

      That takes hard work. Lefties hate hard work. California is the elephant burial ground where lefties go to die.

        It is truly UNBELIEVABLE how California has been degraded down through the decades. Back in the Sixties, it really was beautiful. Fifteen years later, it was unrecognizable. Today, California is largely a shithole. Progressivism at its best, so to speak.

    It is very eerie how history is repeating itself on the fall of Rome.

    Wonder how long before historians are telling of “The Great Sacking of Hollywood and Silicon Valley” at the hands of a future Alaric I…

    The only thing that stays the same is change.

    To be fair, it should be noted that virtually every major city in Canada and the USA has gone way down over the years – usually due to bad government and too many immigrant low life’s on the dole.
