An efficient market economy implies globalization. But we surely don’t want to live in a market society, that is inherently unjust — just starve or die if you are not economically successful enough to afford food or medical care.
Localization of society with regional self rule should be our future goal. That is why Brexit and Calexit make so much sense.
The most cogent argument I’ve heard against Calexit is the mediocre job we’ve done in running our state — no argument there. Both major parties are to blame. And now that the Republicans have driven off a fringe cliff to essential non relevance we do not even have a responsible opposition party to keep the Democrats from their own excesses.
We are choking on our prosperity here in Silicon Valley. It is a great example of a bubble in so many ways. Cash does not always improve quality of life. But it gives us a chance to improve ourselves and society if we have the will.
