FROM THIS EPISODE

When Charles Manson died this month, it did not merely close a door on one of the most sensational crimes in LA history, it marked the end of an era. Manson was universally reviled, but Californians no longer have such an easy time deciding who our villains are. That’s due to an increase in heinous crime, as well as escalating political polarization and echo-chamber media. Zócalo columnist Joe Mathews says California needs a common villain to bring us together and define who we are. And he has a candidate in mind: venture capitalist Peter Thiel.
