People are fleeing California in general, and San Francisco in particular, in droves. As for San Francisco, the fundamental problem is anarchy. Which means not just violent crime, which the city has in abundance, but a breakdown of the fundamental norms of civilization that make urban life possible.
The main problem is that the far-left city administration of San Francisco has decided not to prosecute the theft. The result, of course, is an epidemic of theft. So, for example, Target is now closing its San Francisco stores at 6pm.
Target told KPIX5 that the decision to adjust the hours of its San Francisco store was related to theft and a spokesperson confirmed: “For more than a month, we have been experiencing a significant and alarming increase in thefts and security incidents in our San Francisco stores, similar to reports from other area retailers. “
How low has San Francisco sunk? Watch this video of thieves openly stealing bags and similar goods from a Neiman Marcus store:

Who would want to live in a place like this? Nobody, obviously. When civilization begins to collapse, it can go fast. This is what we are seeing in various parts of the country governed by progressives.
