I know, you are totally right. Its not gonna be pretty for the vast majority of people in the group that feel like you do yet were not smart enough to figure out how to act and instead spent their wealth and time enjoying themselves a bit too richly without checking the weather forecast for the coming years. They will have a very difficult time adjusting to the new reality of being closer to the lower classes when money and titles hold much less value. The culture shock is like if there was two different languages and one of the two groups were foreigners. People who wish they could leave but don't have enough money to do so but they have enough for guns and lots of ammo because violence is the last resort that happens first if these situations. That is why I really do hope there is something that can be done to keep CA from sinking into that sea of tranquility where all those big employers leave. All those woke people you talking about gonna get real sleepy when the serpent sets its gaze upon them and its head starts a rockin uh uh uh for whatever cancel worthy sin they have committed. Everybody in that gravy train gets burned with its acid venom. Only the chosen few can get to fly out to their own slice of heaven. Which btw is the big lie of socialism coincidentally. Because communism is awesome. It is the best and most perfect systems devised for human cooperation, happiness, and steady conservatively paced societal progress. But its impossible by human hands. Anyone peddling it is fooling you or has been fooled. Has a master or servant mentality... but without the fun parts. It is the heaven of religion but brought to you by the marketing dept. Marduk is the god of both war and markets for a reason. And this religion been loving long time. Luckily I think there may be some dragonslayers out yonder. To save your progressive friends from the lake of dragonfire. We already got one sea of the dead. Gonna be different this time though. Lotta slayers looking to slay. Lined up like pretty maids in a row ready to die for the shot at the fatty underbelly where its scales are weak. But for these heroes to be able to stand tall and thrust their sword somebody with great hang time is gonna have to jump up and ride that snake down into the pit where they waiting for it.
