I 'm certain what we buy and where we go says a lot about us . Today’s technology can predict ALL your preferences with a minimum amount of data , scary indeed !

The State Council has signaled that under the national social credit system people will be penalized for the crime of spreading online rumors, among other offenses, and that those deemed “seriously untrustworthy” can expect to receive substandard services.

The Chinese government determines what those alleged rumors are and punishes your credit score accordingly. Shouldn’t there be a billion pissed off Chinese people right now?

Imagine a world where an authoritarian government monitors everything you do, amasses huge amounts of data on almost every interaction you make, and awards you a single score that measures how ‘trustworthy’ you are.

Imagine a world war the government monitors every call, text, electronic transmission you make.
Imagine a world where your video taped everywhere you go.

In this world, anything from defaulting on a loan to criticising the ruling party, from running a red light to failing to care for your parents properly, could cause you to lose points. And in this world, your score becomes the ultimate truth of who you are – determining whether you can borrow money, get your children into the best schools or travel abroad, whether you get a room in a fancy hotel, a seat in a top restaurant – or even just get a date.

Sound more and more like our current country doesn’t it.
