Chinese people who have low social-credit scores are harassed and ostracized through warnings about them on their cell-phone ring tones, which everyone can hear. They are subject air-travel bans, excluded from well-paying jobs, barred from owning a car or home, and publicly identified on a ‘Deadbeat Map’. Their social-credit system is slated to go nationwide in 2020. The effect will be a culture of fear and a nation of informants, because individuals can earn positive points by snitching. The Chinese Communist Party has given birth to the world’s first high-tech digital dictatorship and now it is selling its system to other like-minded socialist dictatorships. Venezuela was its first customer. -GEG
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.
Not only are you publicly humiliated in the ticket line, you are then
forced to travel by slow train. What should have been a three-hour
flight becomes a 30-hour, stop-and-go nightmare.
All because the government has declared you untrustworthy. Perhaps
you defaulted on a loan, made the mistake of criticizing some government
policy online or just spent too much time playing video games on the
internet. All of these actions, and many more, can cause your score to
plummet, forcing citizens onto the most dreaded rung on China’s deadbeat
caste system, the laolai.
And the punishments are shocking. The government algorithm will go as
far as to install an “embarrassing” ring tone on the phones of laolai,
shaming them every time they get a call in public.
But an embarrassing ring tone, flight bans and slow trains are just
the beginning of the dystopian nightmare that is now daily life in China
for tens of millions of people.
A low social credit score will exclude you from well-paid jobs, make
it impossible for you to get a house or a car loan or even book a hotel
room. The government will slow down your internet connection, ban your
children from attending private schools and even post your profile on a
public blacklist for all to see.
According to Australia’s ABC News,
the government has produced a “Deadbeat Map” via an app on WeChat,
which shows a radar-style graphic identifying every laolai in the
vicinity of the user.
“Tapping on a person marked on the map reveals their personal
information, including their full name, court-case number and the reason
they have been labeled untrustworthy. Identity-card numbers and home
addresses are also partially shown,” ABC reported.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)

Academics now are saying that, from 1999 to 2010, six-million manufacturing jobs, one-third of all US manufacturing employment, were lost to China and had nothing to do with robots or automation. Blue-collar workers instinctively knew that, and it was one of the reasons they supported Trump who openly said so. According to the academics, the introduction of China into the global trading system is the root cause of the job losses. [True though this may be, we must not forget that none of this could have happened without the eager support of American political, financial, and industrial leaders. In that sense, they are just as much the cause, if not more so, than the Chinese.]
