This kind of person exists in every society, but it is more likely to find one in a region rife with poverty, ignorance, and religious dogma.
..like California ISNT full of hopeless losers..?
California has a lot of people, so, assuming the proportion of losers remains somewhat constant in much of the world, that means that they have a lot of losers among their people.
I find it interesting that you mentioned California. California is generally one of the more prosperous, educated, and secular states in America. So, by choosing that state, you have put up a good scenario to challenge my view with.
I would guess the reason why California has a lot of losers is because they are very materialistic in certain parts of that state. Given the kind of emphasis that wealth and business are given in that state's culture, you could maybe consider materialism to be their religion, so to speak. There are also areas of California that are chock full of poor illegal immigrants who lack in their education (and who have weighed down the education and healthcare systems of certain areas). So.... that's where you will find the poverty and ignorance necessary to define losers by.
Still, say what you will about California, but they don't have many people that engage in terrorism. The most destructive people in the world are generally found in Islamic countries and the African continent in general. Of course, I'm not saying all of them are that way, by any means....
