My impression is that "California" is becoming more of a caste society in general. That's how typhus-ridden homeless encampments can exist concurrently with pricey new developments and apartment buildings. It doesn't indicate "collapse," but it does mean that the old "middle America" ideal of cohesive, middle-class-dominated communities is probably dead in most of California. California's future might look more like other stratified societies outside of the US, except with somewhat more wealth in the upper income deciles.
