31. The California Dream

The California Dream The Oxford English Dictionary defines a dream as 'a cherished aspiration, ambition, or ideal'. What is the California dream? And how does it compare... and contrast to the American dream, or as many now understand it the American nightmare? Can California aspire to reach her dreams within an undemocratic and dysfunctional American system? Or should California chart her own course and determine her own destiny?Hi, my name is Darin Brown, and these are just some of the questions we'll be asking in our new podcast The California Dream.Let me tell you about some of what we have planned for the future. We'll discuss California history and culture. We'll talk to activists in the California independence campaign and keep you up to date on current events in the Calexit movement. We are also proud to host audio episodes of The California War, a new weekly video series that will recall the events leading to the American conquest of California on its 175-year anniversary. We'll interview authors and scholars whose work intersects with history, government, political theory, and international relations.So, if you want to learn more about California, or if you just care about the California dream, we'd love to have you subscribe and join us as we navigate through these truly unprecedented times.more
