Beijing to Judge Every Resident Based on ‘Social Credit Score’ by End of 2020
China is implementing its plan to judge each of its residents based on a ‘social credit score’ with Beijing on track to adopt the program by the end of 2020.
This week, Beijing debuted its plan to monitor residents’ behavior and to reward or punish people based on data collected from various departments.
China’s capital city will implement this Orwellian system by 2020.
China’s plan to judge each of its 1.3 billion people based on their social behavior is moving a step closer to reality, with Beijing set to adopt a lifelong points program by 2021 that assigns personalized ratings for each resident.
The capital city will pool data from several departments to reward and punish some 22 million citizens based on their actions and reputations by the end of 2020, according to a plan posted on the Beijing municipal government’s website on Monday. Those with better so-called social credit will get “green channel” benefits while those who violate laws will find life more difficult.
The Beijing project will improve blacklist systems so that those deemed untrustworthy will be “unable to move even a single step,” according to the government’s plan. Xinhua reported on the proposal Tuesday, while the report posted on the municipal government’s website is dated July 18.
The “social credit score” system was unveiled in Hangzhou earlier this year and results were shocking.
By the end of May, people with bad credit in China have been blocked from booking more than 11 million flights and 4 million high-speed train trips, according to the National Development and Reform Commission.
The United States isn’t too far off from this oppressive system, or a form of it. In fact it is already happening in the US in a much softer form.
American citizens are already being punished by tech overlords if they dare pass a certain threshold and post content deemed ‘hateful.’
In some cases Americans are completely deplatformed from all social media sites and cut off from various financial services such as PayPal, Mastercard, Patreon and Stripe.
Recently, Gab, a social media platform was cut off from many financial services and even faced losing its website and domain after being threatened by Microsoft.
One could argue Alex Jones, Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannopoulos and Charles Johnson were all deplatformed because their ‘social credit score’ put them on a blacklist.
