Big Brother Arrives: China Bans People With "Bad Social Credit" From Planes, Trains

Recommended Posts

Excellent graphic at the link.


Two years ago, we reported that various cities throughout China are currently piloting a "social-credit system" that will assign a "personal citizen score" to every single person based on behavior such as spending habits, turnstile violations and filial piety.

We warned at the time that this 'score' could be used to blacklist citizens from loans, jobs, or travel...

So, imagine our shock, following China's massive censorship efforts over the last few weeks surrounding Xi's successful push to become emperor for life, when China said this week it will begin applying its so-called social credit system to flights and trains and stop people who have committed misdeeds from taking such transport for up to a year.


This is what they're planning to launch in the West. Google helped the Chinese develop their version.

Check the graphic at the link. Note it includes measuring online interactions and truthiness. Guess who they're aiming at there?
