Political philosophy

I was listening to

Peter Thiel and he made a very good point:

California and Saudi Arabia are, in fact, very similar. Hear me out:

Saudi Arabia has this amazingly lucrative resource, oil, but they are also plagued by Wahabism. The government has to constantly work to pacify the Wahabi kooks while still selling oil.

California also has rich resources, but is plagued with Wokeism. It has to pacify the “Woke” kooks while managing extraordinary natural resources. And to make it worse, the woke kooks have entirely captured government!

BOTH ideologies are intrinsically violent, and both are a real threat to civil society. Yet both are countenanced and even openly encouraged by many. And both are a lead weight on their state’s economy.
