Orwell online: China’s “Social Credit Score” to rank citizens’ “trustworthiness”

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

You likely know what a credit score is, but have you heard of a social credit score? If not, this tool to rank a citizen’s behaviour is a plan that comes from Justin Trudeau’s favourite basic dictatorship, China.

Like your credit score, it would include your financial transactions but also may include traffic tickets, online activity and even your social media behaviour.

Currently, Chinese tech companies are running voluntary pilot programs before the government steps in to make it mandatory.

You may be wondering if this is so different from what Google, Facebook, and other tech giants already do in the West but watch as I explain the Chinese plan to implement a social credit ranking system by 2020 that will gauge “trustworthiness.”

Anyone critical of the regime would be severely impacted by this rating system which could be used to quash democratic movements.

The Social Credit Score has all the creepiness of Google tracking our every move, and Amazon's customer tracking system – all with grave Orwellian implications.

Is it so far fetched to believe something similar could be in the West’s future?

TAMMIE PUTINSKI-ZANDBELT commented: “The Chinese government will divide it’s citizen’s with these scores and shame anyone who associates with those whose scores do not meet with government approval. Take it further and if the score is objectionable by the government, that person may be forcibly enrolled in a re-education/work camp.”

Or “harvested” for their organs…………..!

Jihadi Justin is drooling over the prospect of bringing this to Canada once he trashes NAFTA and goes full bore relationship with his favorite “basic dictatorship”, China!

Loyd Nolan – the only reason I went “paperless” at home was Canada Post. A wise man once said “If you want something screwed up let the government handle it”..

Back on point: If the Lieberal commies are still running the asylum I’m pretty sure i’d fail this test. I have no filter when it comes to The Clown Prince of the Muslims, Justin Mohammed Trudeaup.

Don’t worry it’s all ready here in the form of leftist arms of the fed libs .
This past summer I had an experience with Canada post , in regards to my mailing cheques to the REBEL for premium content.
I had Canada post do an investigation, it’s not that secure to mail to Conservative or right thinking organizations in my learned opinion.
This post is not over yet , so I won’t amen .
I’ve since learned to use credit card on line

“Christopher, it’s not far fetched at all.”

Indeed, TAMMIE. Our police forces have already amassed files on folks who are vocal proponents of property rights and those who speak out against firearms legislation.

PM commie socks says he admires China’s despotic governing model – I bet he’s copying their commie party loyalty test into French-English and Farsi as we speak. I plan to have a batch of extra hot chili and beers then use his loyalty test questionnaire as toilet paper the following day.

We know the mandatory social credit score ‘number’ will be coming here to Canada, maybe sooner than later…

Living way out here in the central interior BC it’s easy to be unawares of how ‘hooked-up’ to technology everybody else is.
Maybe people should just un-hook…before it’s too late.
Technology has always been sold to us as a benefit – in reality it has put us in a trap – it’s only a matter of time before we will be ranked on some kind of social credit score based on the fact that your entire life is tracked…smart fridges, smart cars, smart phones, smart TVs, smart Big Brother Is Watching YOU…right now! And we all know how the state loves to control…
Does anybody remember how it was when we had the black phone with the dial, before even answering machines…when you used to just let it ring sometimes.

Keith Barnes, I think it is Butts with the tent in his pants. Trudie’s “feminism” has left him with sympathetic periods every 21-28 days.

Big Brother is still growing and Trudeau will have an erection, just thinking about it.

Christopher, it’s not far fetched at all. Our own totalitarian leaning leader would be very interested in this for Canada.
The Chinese government will divide it’s citizen’s with these scores and shame anyone who associates with those whose scores do not meet with government approval. Take it further and if the score is objectionable by the government, that person may be forcibly enrolled in a re-education/work camp.

I wonder how many left wing ,SJW ,progressives think that subjects like this are not a concern as they will be safe from any state sanction or punishment? IDIOTS!

Peter Netterville that prediction may come true,these things have a way of accelerating exponentially.

Christopher, I doubt it will take even ten years to be in the West. More like five years.
