As I have said before, the US is presently undergoing a transition from a historically unconventional middle-class society to a “normal” or traditional model of society. California is the region of the US where this transition is furthest along. The features of a traditional society are an entrenched ruling oligarchy, high levels of social stratification between rich and poor, a clerical class that serves as the ideological/moral arbiters of the wider society, and a general population that is motivated primarily by tribalism with zero interest in liberal values. Here it is.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed (D) said Tuesday that California Gov. Gavin Newsom‘s (D) choice of Secretary of State Alex Padilla (D) to fill Vice President-elect Kamala Harris‘s (D) vacant Senate seat is “a real blow to the African American community.”
When asked about her thoughts on Newsom’s pick by an ABC affiliate, Breed said the decision was a surprise.
“This is a real blow to the African American community, to African American women, to women in general,” she said, according to ABC 7 News. “It’s really challenging to put it into words, but it was definitely a surprise.”
