I would put NY, California, and Hawaii in "Enemy Territory"
I turned down a huge opportunity to do some work out in a beautiful area of California. No matter how bad I want to walk that hallowed ground again (real talk, I love CA) I fear how fast they could just lock it all down and trap me there forever under penalty of vaxx.

It’s not really a traditionally β€˜shit lib’ area, but I can’t risk border closures or even God’s wrath sinking it all into the sea.

High-IQ, right-wing dictatorships like China are the best.

They've ironed out the mistakes of all other right-wing dictatorships throughout history.

Also, since the jews say it's bad, we know it's good.

Except Best Korea.

I know it's better to live there, but it still scares me.

Brother, my entire New Jersey family is voting for Murphy; my brother-in-law does PR for the Governor’s office πŸ₯Ί
Get out while you still can, G. The guest room is still available πŸ˜‰. PA, for the moment, is slightly better but I imagine we will all be heading south sooner or later

unless you're talking about most people from SoCal or the Central Valley, who are, for lack of a better word, completely psychotic.
The marijuana is so strong now, it induces psychosis. The number of people in California who are blasted on this shit 24/7/365 is staggering. And something that most people don't understand is how angry and violent modern weed addicts can be. The old cliche of the stoner on the couch watching tv and eating Ben & Jerries while barely able to form anything resembling a coherent sentence is thirty years out of date. This modern weed seems to short-circuit all parts of the brain that regulate logic, reasoning, and self-control.

I hadn't actually thought of the role of weed in the psychological makeup of Californians in particular, but there might be something to your hypothesis. Commercially-grown cannabis flower is now up into the 30%+ THC content range, which is astronomical, and then on top of that already excessive percentage, there is high-purity cannabis oil available everywhere that people smoke in dab rigs which function identically to crack pipes. Millions of people smoke hash oil exclusively, and do so as soon as they roll out of bed in the morning. And Good Lord, that shit fucks you up worse than crack - and for a MUCH longer duration. I used to vape that garbage for a while, until I had to acknowledge how discombobulating its effects were.

It blows my mind that anybody can even partially function under the influence of that much THC. It is extremely dissociative, and I'll wager that the dabs and various high-potency edibles are responsible for large numbers of traffic and workplace accidents. And I agree that marijuana is unjustly viewed as a drug of peace. I think that in a more benign, high-trust social environment - aka demographically white-dominated - cannabis, especially of low potency, would be a minor social ill on a level comparable to alcohol abuse. But in the collapsed society of America in 2021, it has become a significant destabilizing influence upon a population that is already under significant stress, as well as being ravaged by opiate and SSRI abuse.

And we thought Russian alcoholics were a meme during the 90's and early 00's. Americans are far more chemically dependent than Russians ever were, and what's worse is that we don't even have intact families to rely upon when our lives fall apart. Even when we do have a semblance of a family structure, it's very likely that other people in our families are on some kind of psychoactive prescription drug of some kind. It makes me wonder how the masses will adapt when the spigot of mood-regulating substances is switched off or curtailed substantially, as would occur during hyperinflation. In general terms, I think the average person is going to need to redefine their concept of personal safety in an environment of chronic, latent psychosis, when the person next to you is just barely holding it together.

First of all, great post.

I've noticed in my city, more erratic driving and erratic behavior.

People are losing it.

The only driving trend I've noticed is that people tend to speed and violate traffic laws more, but that could be attributed to the near-total absence of cops doing traffic enforcement these days. The big behavioral change I've picked up on is with service industry employees. I notice that many of them are totally out to lunch and prone to making stupid errors.
