This month’s Featured Group is: Pacifica
Pacifica is a thought experiment.
The 1972 the novel “Ecotopia” (by Ernest Callenbach) told of a universe in which the states of California, Washington state and Oregon successfully succeeded from the United States to form the new and independent nation of Ecotopia.
Today, as the US faces a more and more toxic divide between left and right, there are those who have floated the possibility of California leaving the union.
Pacifica is an expanded exploration of what such a new nation could look like; what would that new nations strengths, weaknesses and proprieties be and finally an assessment of whether such a new nation is even plausible.
