In the wake of Donald Trump’s election night win, progressives across the country have struggled to understand how they fit into a large swath of the country that expressly rejects liberal values. Californians seem particularly at odds with red state priorities, as evidenced by the fact that Hillary Clinton’s 2.6 million popular vote lead largely came from the Golden State. As a result, more Californians are seriously considering the option of seceding form the nation, rallying behind the “Calexit” label both on social media and in the street.
Watching #Calexit create a firestorm online reminded me of a book published in 1975 that predicted this very idea.
