Gov. Candidate Blames ‘Progressive’ Policies for Making CA a Poverty-Stricken Racist Dystopia

California’s primary elections Tuesday underscored the Golden State’s liberal drift, but one of the candidates who lost the race for governor powerfully diagnosed “progressive” policies as the root of California’s snobbish inequality. He compared the state to the dystopian nightmare of “Elysium,” a 2013 film about a highly stratified society where the poor struggle to live on planet Earth while the rich enjoy a lavish life off planet.

“This is the story about a real-world ‘Elysium’ — a state which has the highest levels of poverty & inequality in the country but whose residents have convinced themselves that they are behaving ethically, protecting the environment, and fighting racism,” Mike Shellenberger, an environmental activist who ran for governor, tweeted.
