How China Is Planning to Rank 1.3 Billion People

By host - anderson-olsen
China has a radical plan to influence the behavior of its 1.3 billion citizens: It wants to grade them based on aspects of their lives to reflect how good (or bad) a civilian they are. Versions of the so-called social credit system are being tested in a dozen or so cities with the aim of creating a network that encompasses the whole nation. Critics say it’s a heavy-handed, intrusive and sinister way for a one-party state to control the population. Supporters say it’ll make for a more considerate, civilized and law-abiding society. The government has warned: “Those who violate the law and lose the trust will pay a heavy price.”https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-12-01/china-s-radical-plan-to-judge-each-citizen-s-behavior-quicktake?utm_content=business&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=socialflow-organic&utm_source=facebook&cmpid=socialflow-facebook-business

Implementing this kind of social credit score system may seem impossible to some now but as long as there are people who believe and pursue their vision...this is possible.

Man and what if this score affected your ability to get a loan?? Or find an apartment? Or get a job. Oh wait. That’s the American credit rating system.

As long as you pay back your credit cards. That’s all that matters. Your credit score won’t go down if you buy alcohol, cigarettes, video games, go to jail, jaywalk, criticize the government, friends with other low score people.

Credit system does not rate your political view. In China, if you criticise communist party, you are screwed.

For anyone trying to compare this with Western credit ratings and police records completely misses the point. The Chinese social index should never be compared. At the flip of a switch if you show any signs against the communist parties your life can be shut down. The levels of monitoring and control of this system is a nightmare for some.

Bank uses credit rating to determine whether or not to let you borrow its own money. China uses this system to determine how loyal you are to the Communist Party and denies your individual rights and public services based on your rating. Very different concepts.
