Problem is this already happened ........
November 1965 - massive power failure blacks out much of east coast US for several hours causing massive disruption
Later traced to relay in Canadian power plant at Niagara Falls which tripped and shunted power to US side tripping safety relays
July 1977 - New York City (sometimes called "NIGHT OF THE ANIMALS" )
Lightning strikes knocked out several High voltage transmissions lines causing massive overload in NYC, grid tripped out, Massive looting and arson
Short circuit caused by overloaded power lines drooping into trees and software glitch which prevented operators
from recognizing and correcting problem caused cascading failure of grid in easten US and Canada
Then Hurricane Sandy (2012) last year when knocked out power for days or even weeks in much of NE United States
I experienced the above blackouts,,,,,,,
During Sandy lost power for 2 days, some areas lost power for WEEKS. Problem was without power gasoline pumps dont work - result massive gas lines.
Supermarkets were closed because did have power to operate
and deliverys were cancelled
No food or fuel.......
Unlike your conspiracy fantasies this has happened multiple times resulting in massive disruptions to economy
