Tim is explaining why he thinks California is ungovernable and he’s giving off some stats and now Adam is transitioning to the topic of competition and how it’s the only thing that truly matters.

Adam and Tim are talking about the hippy movement against competition that was part of the 1970’s and the way that completion was framed as a negative as opposed to neutral motivation.

Adam is getting to the districts and the way people manipulate addresses to make a better life and education for their children.

Tim is explaining why 6 California’s is better than 4, he’s telling them about why 6 allows for people to choose which California they want to live in based on government performance.
