"The Blue State model of social media, steep taxes, big government, social liberality, smaller families, sophisticated culture, and high incomes has become more culturally influential. It dominates universities, foundations, entertainment, and media. Trillions have poured into companies like Facebook, Google, and Microsoft and to the high tech companies that spin off and the hipster cultures they spawn. The great universities are on the coasts, they hone the skills necessary to do well in globalized commerce and trade.

When I dine in Palo Alto, the food, the ambiance, and the people's diction and dress might as well be on Mars, so foreign are they compared to eating out in my rural hometown." - Victor Davis Hanson, The Case for Trump (2019)
