A Look at China’s Terrifying Social Credit System

Recently, China unveiled a frightening new program that sounds like something straight out of a dystopian science-fiction novel.

Under this new program, Chinese citizens will be assigned a “social credit score”. This social credit score will operate much like a traditional credit score, but rather than fluctuating up and down based on a person’s finances, this social credit score will fluctuate up and down based on their personal behavior.

There’s a long list of things that will cause a person’s social credit score to go down under this system, including posting hateful comments online, buying too many video games, buying too much alcohol, disagreeing with the government, and even placing a phone call to a friend with a low social credit score. If a citizen’s social credit score drops too low, they are punished by being prevented from buying plane, train, and bus tickets, prevented from getting a loan, prevented from booking a hotel, and more.

This system is designed for one purpose – to allow the authoritarian Chinese government to completely control even the smallest actions of its people. It’s a terrifying example of how dangerous technology can be in the hands of an unchecked government. Given the way tech companies and those on the left are already working to limit free speech and punish social behavior in the Western world, though, China may not be the last country to introduce such a system.
