China’s new ‘social credit system’ turns Orwell’s ‘1984’ into reality… (NYP) – Imagine calling a friend. Only instead of hearing a ring tone, you hear a police siren, and then a voice intoning, “Be careful in your dealings with this person.” Would that put a damper on your relationship? It’s supposed to. Welcome to life in China’s “Social Credit System,” where a low score can ruin your life in more ways than one. Say you arrive at the Beijing airport, intending to catch a flight to Canton 1,200 miles south. The clerk at the ticket counter turns you away because — you guessed it — your social credit score is too low. Awwwww and it's all such a conspiracy, even though the awakened world is screaming the dunce still don't get it. People hear iit, they see it all that don't won't ever see their dangers staring right back at them.
