“The Progressive Utopia of California Becomes the First State to Eliminate Electricity Entirely,” is the headline of this satirical piece at The Babylon Bee.
“SACRAMENTO, CA—California is being heralded as a progressive utopia after eliminating electricity entirely.
Working by candlelight at his desk, Governor Gavin Newsom signed a new law that bans electricity, propelling the state into a progressive, futuristic paradise. Newsom said he got the idea while experiencing the latest round of rolling blackouts in the state. He decided to make the blackouts the law of the land.”
It isn’t quite as bad as all that, at least, not yet. However, when I read the piece, I thought “This is spot-on. Things are getting so bizarre that this could be true.”
