No. We have always had people pushing for political correctness, and people laughing at them or the courts putting them in their place.
Social Media is the worst trend so far in my life time. All of the people we used to seek help for, laugh at, or ignore are now amplified. They can group together, they can attack en mass, and they can normalize anything because Social Media keeps them locked into a circle of their own type, so anything outside of that genuinely looks like it's the abnormal viewpoint.
Also, the internet becoming a commercial endeavor has also been really bad. I remember when the internet was called The Information Super Highway. We dialed in to learn things, to explore parts of the world we could never visit. Talking to someone across the globe was exciting, and inspiring.
Now you combine the Social Media aspect with "need to have clicks" commercialization and you get those minorities that are trapped in a bubble getting affirmation from websites that don't genuinely care, but need to generate revenue. Outlandish lifestyles, flat earth theories, economic scares, fights in the street, etc are constantly broadcast to generate clicks and ad revenue. You have to remember that News Sites are a business, and business needs customers.
So, those two things combine to make the one big mess. People trapped inn their bubbles (by design) warring with other people in bubbles (by design) that get offended and go to war whenever something outside of their bubble somehow makes it in.

Remember that Michigan is the state that went to investigate voter fraud, and then abandoned it by saying there was too much of it figure out

We are currently building the Toyota Headquarters in Texas, which is also relocating from California.
When shit hit the fan with the Huy Fong Foods (Sriracha) mayors from Texas towns went to court that company (and it scared the city in California to change their mind about implementing new rules).
Plano, TX alone is home to FedEx Office, Lays, PepsiCo, Dr Pepper, Ericsson, JC Penney, Snapple, Huawei, Pizza Hut, Cinemark, Dell, Rent A Center......
California keeps raising the cost to do business, not realizing that it's too easy for a company to move it's headquarters or tech business. It's not like the days of manufacturing, where it would be cost prohibitive to relocate all of the machines to another state. Now you pack up your laptops, copy your data to the new server, and set up shop.
Edit: I realize this article is about a manufacturing company, but as I started typing, I wanted to get my thought across about California and business as a whole.

What? Melodies became a staple of hip hop back in the early '90s. Did you stop listening when it was still disco hooks looped?

Please tell me it wasn't Courtney Love that made you change your mind. She's the picture perfect definition of an attention whore.
Harvey Weinstein is proving again that these chicks aren't anything without him. Washed up shit-tier celebrities using him for attention.
