The proselytization of California's dysfunctional neo-socialism into other (more functional) cultures, either to geographic neighbors through the influence of the ever-fleeing citizenry or to the entire globe through the insidious and unending preaching of the "entertainment" industry.

Socialists, of course, will not rest until everyone around them have also completely embraced failure. Note California's economic condition - the practice of its ideologies have driven the state to destitution, yet they feel obligated to preach to the rest of us how we should become more like they are.
Arizona has suffered massive social and economic damage from years of relentless front-line Californication.

Western society's pop culture and media encroachment and spread all over the world. In particular, the negative aspects of media and culture originating from within the United States' 31st State: California.

The spread and influence of western memes and culture, esp. that of California, across the world. Especially focusing on the selling of sex. Made of the words "California" and "fornication"

The process by which the American television and film industry, for the most part based in California, spreads their own highly sexualized, consumer driven, version of American culture that heavily emphasizes sex, violence, celebrity, and youth as both virtues to be extolled and goals to be achieved. Ignoring and often doing everything in their power to blur, if not erase, the dividing line between the fantasy of the cinemas world view and reality. This process has become pandemic with the proliferation of reality television wherein a person can achieve "Californication" without possessing any real talent but rather just the ability to make a fool of themselves on a world wide stage (See: Snookie)
The sudden popularity of this actress is merely a case of "Californication".

1.) The influence of the California lifestyle on other states. When Californians move to other states like Oregon, and Nevada, and try to live, speak and act like they are still in California. (originated from the Hot Chili Peppers' album).

2.) When a Californian, sleeps with someone from another state to whom they are not married.
Don't try to commit Californication in Nevada, we like our state as it is, don't bring your California life here.

1. The idoling of the movie industry in California, in part. Hollywood.
2. Sexual royalties to become a part of the movie industry.

Californication means when Western civilization has an effect on another state (or country). This isn't only limited to California. They mean all WESTERN states. Besides, all the smart Californians know that this state isn't just a beach, or one city (Hollywood)
Does anyone posting here even live in California? Jeez, live here, then insult us.
