'China is taking their authoritarian government to a new level by implementing a new “social credit score” system. Under this new tyrannical system, the country’s 1.4 billion citizens can expect to be under constant surveillance — and how they “behave” on a daily basis will ultimately determine how many rights they are allowed to have. If your score drops too low, who knows what may happen next.
For Chinese journalist Liu Hu, the communist country’s latest power grab is already taking its toll. Liu says that when he tried to book a flight recently, he was told that he was “banned from flying” because he was on a list of “untrustworthy” people. The news came after Liu was ordered by a court to apologize for a series of tweets he wrote.
Ultimately, the apology was dismissed by authorities as “insincere.” Now, Liu faces even more problems. “I can’t buy property. My child can’t go to a private school.”
“You feel you’re being controlled by the list all the time,” he added. But Liu is not the exception — the “list” is growing longer by the day, especially as the Chinese government works to expand their surveillance. When combined with the “social credit score” system, the term “big brother” hardly feels like a sufficient description. Not only will citizens of China be constantly monitored, anything and everything they do will be assessed and judged — and their rights depend on it. And as CBS2′s Ben Tracey notes, trying to clear your name in China is difficult (if not impossible) since there’s no due process.
Many people fear that the government will use this new system to punish those who do not support the Communist government. Every citizen will have a credit score — and how the system truly works is being kept under wraps, paving the way for government abuse (as if the very notion of this system isn’t a form of government abuse to begin with).'
