Victor Davis Hanson on life in the ongoing historical reenactment called California. It's Augustine's City of God written by Stephen King.

The Toyota is always around when theft occurs, and always speeding off when anyone spots it. Rural California is also like North Africa circa 420 AD: the few family farms left are mostly fenced or walled, the dogs large, the owners armed — trying to survive against organized Vandal attacks.
