American culture is at a turning point.
By and large, and in spite of¬† generalizations being just that, we don’t make much in this country any more.
I say that from the perspective of being a Californian, and a former manufacturer, retailer, turned artist. To build anything in California today one must overcome great odds, and many of those are indigenously repressive due to a morass of regulations¬† meant to make things “better” when they were originally concepted.
But no one really considered the cost to those supposed benefits. Those laws and regulations, implemented in a time of growth and leveraged spending, came at an expense never realized till now. California lost the ability to make anything. And as California goes, in many ways, so does the Nation.
