When I arrived in California in the 1970’s as an idealistic and enthusiastic young actress, I remember how enamored I was with the beautiful state, and Los Angeles itself. Intellectuals in New York used to disparage Los Angeles, claiming pridefully that artists in Los Angeles were just wannabes, and that the real creative genius of our country lay undisputedly in New York City. Artists almost had to apologize for being from Los Angeles if they wanted to be taken seriously.
Alas, all has changed now, however. The ever-expanding totalitarian creep that has permeated all of our foundational institutions–education, family, religion, justice– has taken root in California, flourishing there at a breathtaking pace, and setting the example for the rest of the United States. That example, in my opinion, will ruin us all. Once called the “land of fruits and nuts” California has now risen to become the “prototype for all social and environmental experiments in the United States.”
If the news is to be believed, California proudly leads the country in its dictatorial, invasive, unfair policies aimed at its citizens. These are almost too numerous to mention and have been addressed in depth by those covering the exodus of Californians to other freer states.
However, I have a word of warning for all who think they are escaping the repressive policies. You are not. This horror show will be “coming to a theater near you” very soon. Whoever has set the vision for the United States in the future–and it has been set, make no mistake–have chosen all new things to be tested in California first. If successful there, no matter how outrageous it seems to you, it will be exported to other states. One by one, states will succumb to the cancer of socialism. And I predict you will see ignorant or complicit leadership gleefully embrace policies that, in the end, could impoverish us all, and enslave us all.
For example, many of you probably read about the ban on all new gas-powered cars in California by 2035. Whether the citizen wants it or not, whether the citizen can afford it or not, he will have to buy electric vehicles if he wants a new car, struggle to find gas for his old car, or bicycle around. You may have thought that idea was ridiculous and won’t catch hold. Wrong! Even before it has been implemented fully, California’s reputation for being the place where all “progressive” innovations, and forward-thinking ideas flourish is causing other states to salivate. Just a few months after Newsom announced this new blatant interference with free commerce, free choice of the consumer, and is leading his people like sheep to the alter of the Climate God, New York has apparently announced they will do the same. Why? Because all these “bright ideas” are tested first in the Golden State, and then can roll out elsewhere. That is the definition of a prototype.
Take also the guaranteed minimum income of $1000/month that is starting as a test project for three years in parts of Los Angeles. Heated debate is going on about the effects of such a thing on the taxpayer/producer, and on the unsuspecting person who receives something he didn’t earn. No better way to make a person weak than to treat him as if he cannot produce. Yet they are doing just that. Many of you may have already scoffed at that idea, shaking your heads in dismay. Well, that too is “coming to a theater near you.” Cook County in Illinois suddenly says it wants to do the same thing. They may be a bit more timid than Los Angeles, though. They are only offering $500/month to those whose hopes and dreams will be destroyed by being labeled unable to succeed. Once again, before the prototype has even been thoroughly tested, it is being embraced.
In the medical area, you may have read that the bill passed in California and has been signed by the Governor that punishes physicians for advice and guidance they give to patients, if that advice does not align with the “approved science” of the WOKE and ignorant. See the NY Times, Aug. 29. Nothing like some bureaucrat who probably never even took an advanced science class to be dictating to doctors what they can and cannot recommend to their patients. Forget the doctor’s oath; forget the doctor/patient confidentiality. Medical professionals can now be disciplined by the “state” for doing what they were trained to do: observe, diagnose, evaluate, recommend, and treat the individual in front of them.
How long do you think it will be before another state decides to create such legislation? Who wants to take bets on who it will be? Are you living in that state right now?
I have a message for those fleeing California. It might be better to “defund” the lunatics who create these social justice and environmental prototypes, lest you move to another state, only to find the cancer has spread there too.
So, to my friends around this great country–especially in New York and Washington, DC: Don’t underestimate California. Do not ignore the disgusting, repressive ideas they come up with, and put into policy and practice. If the prototype works in accomplishing their goal, it will roll out. The citizens are losing their freedom to choose. They are losing their hard-earned income, witnessing the beginning of the redistribution of their money under the guise of “social justice” and “fairness.” And the medical professionals will surrender their ethics and integrity, or risk losing their ability to honestly practice their profession.
Just as in the justice system, once a precedent has been established, it carries forward and becomes the justification for future rulings. Make no mistake. This is California’s role in the brave new world I write about in my novels. They are the testing lab for an enslaving future. If you want to know what is planned for your state, look to California. What a nickname, huh? “California–the prototype for the nation.”

So happy to see your many publications and the subjects you have chosen to address. As a member of our class I am thrilled you have risen with courage and determination to influence the American people. I became a mother of four and at present a grandmother of 16 and Gr Gr other of one. I have worked hard with my hand in God’s to create good men and women who are a benefit to society and be helpful to those our family individuals come in contact with. I graduated Nursing School, AS Degree, BS Degree in Clinical Psych and Counseling, and in using the many talents God gave me trying all abilities others had , I served also as a nurse, teacher, councilor, chef, Nanny for children, mentor for music, seamstress, toys made of cloth , ceramic, wood etc for boys and girls and clothes and shoes for children.
Wonderful expression about what ideas and work the “Lucky Man” did to better us all. Awesome. As for “California-the Prototype for the Nation”, this article should be read by every government official that they might start realizing just what some of these notions for nation improvement are taking us. Some people in NYS. are buying mobile homes so they can sell their homes and travel where ever fuel is available instead of trying to schedule electrical recharges at supposed fuel up stations. The thought of all these changes will change America’s patterns of living just as people will need all kinds of electrical vehicles like buses, taxies and only God knows what will happen when states jump on these band wagons of notions with out thinking past the long run for rich or poor. All of American citizens need to have a say In our future families to live in an ability to care for one’s family and not wind up in an unfair class system for only those who can self actuate ( development of talent, abilities and use the mind God gave us to become and create physically, mentally and spiritually” to become what God had in mined as He gave each of us assignments for this world so we all can live happily and equally). Attention people of America, don’t be led like an animal by a rope some leader only worrying about the rich man’s bank account. Vote ! Vote for people for the good of all and that we might have leaders who see all peoples needs.
