Who do these scumbags think they are?
Have you heard about China’s social credit system? It’s a technology-enabled, surveillance-based nationwide program designed to nudge citizens toward better behavior. The ultimate goal is to “allow the trustworthy to roam everywhere under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step,” according to the Chinese government.
In place since 2014, the social credit system is a work in progress that could evolve by next year into a single, nationwide point system for all Chinese citizens, akin to a financial credit score. It aims to punish for transgressions that can include membership in or support for the Falun Gong or Tibetan Buddhism, failure to pay debts, excessive video gaming, criticizing the government, late payments, failing to sweep the sidewalk in front of your store or house, smoking or playing loud music on trains, jaywalking, and other actions deemed illegal or unacceptable by the Chinese government.
It can also award points for charitable donations or even taking one’s own parents to the doctor.
Punishments can be harsh, including bans on leaving the country, using public transportation, checking into hotels, hiring for high-visibility jobs, or acceptance of children to private schools. It can also result in slower internet connections and social stigmatization in the form of registration on a public blacklist.
China’s social credit system has been characterized in one pithy tweet as “authoritarianism, gamified.”
The implications of scoring people is really incidious. Hope it never takes h*** here or all conservatives will be besmurched and squashed like bugs.
the bleeped word in this comment is the word hold. Not sure why that got changed...interesting. Now hold is a bad word????
Marique, who do these people think they are?
such arrogance for a bunch of political gangsters; the communist party, to assume themselves
moral authority over private lives. atheist clowns with zero spiritual mandate, running china to hell.
Leftists create nothing it seems-they steal and/or destroy.
Communist party members in positions of authority pilfer the Treasury or over pay themselves at the state owned corporations/steal profits-THEY ALSO SELL BODY PARTS FROM POLITICAL PRISONERS-CANNIBALS!!!
The Bank of China went bankrupt, I think around 2005-06, from pilfering and the commies made it a public company for foreign investors, sold the shares and the peoples money was returned.
North Korea is the same insanity-GANGSTERS PARADISE
free hong kong, free tibet and long live taiwanese independence from red china.....
