SimCity is a video game that goes back to 1989 that appears to have become the primary influence on urban planners. In the game, you start with empty land, and you control the development of the growth of the city by micromanaging every detail. The humans living in the city have no purpose other than being counters simulated inside an algorithm that was designed to force the player to accept a specific version of what a successful city looks like. California has just passed a series of laws creating a utopian state of perfect cities.
California passed into law 15 new laws that complete the transition of California to a socialist paradise. Governor Jerry Brown has obviously been colluding with 1960s Soviet Russia, with its centralized planning emphasizing dreary high-rise buildings built along transit routes.
The bills include new taxes on home sales, selling bonds to build homeless shelters and low-income housing, and forcing cities to develop plans to integrate low-income housing in their cities and all new development.
The most paradoxical provision requires that the developers of low-cost housing pay the construction workers more money.
