Hippies, flower power, gay rights, Dead Kennedys, squat punks, Maximum Rocknroll, radical campus politics at Berkeley, all figments of my imagination obviously.


Silicon Valley is dominated by Libertarian tech-bros who idolise Ayn Rand.

And San Fran is Liberal, Oakland has a more radical socialist history which is why they are resisting the influx of the silicon valley crowd

Watching Google's ferry steam out of Oakland docks beyond rock-throwing range it can seem as if here the anti-tech rebellion has found a bastion. It makes sense: Oakland, a gritty, industrial port city of 400,000 souls just across the bay from San Francisco, has been America's crucible of leftwing radicalism for more than a century, home to socialists, trade-union agitators, poets, jazz musicians, rabble-rousers, civil-rights leaders, Black Panthers and anarchists. Occupy activists clashed with police and stormed city hall here in 2012. A bronze sculpture of Oakland's most famous writer and activist, Jack London, overlooks the bay like a sentinel. "You have mismanaged the world," he once told a wealthy, frock-coated audience in New York, "and it shall be taken from you."
