OK. But "Woketopia" once it's shed the shackles of the GOP brake on fiscal policy will be be able to implement a social safety net, dump the war on drugs, instead taking a public health approach, defund the current police system and instead spend much more on social support and education, with a smaller specialised police force that works closely with medical and social services. It's no coincidence that the GOP are responsible for the policies (or lack thereof) that allow them to then point to large Democrat-run cities and crow about the cesspool-status of these cities.

In addition, California is world-leader in the production of some agricultural goods, from almonds to Zinfandel, as well as having significant technical and artistic output, so, it too, has a strong economic foundation.
