Silicon Valley Is Building A Chinese-Style Social-Credit System in the US

Wiki

Tim Pool explains that the US is creating a social-credit system, parallel to the one in China. The government is becoming obsolete, because most of our social functions are transacted through private companies, as much of our economy is reliant on the internet and large multinational companies have no allegiance to the people. China’s social-credit system punishes people for some behaviors while points are awarded for other more desirable actions.

In the US, life insurance companies can base premiums on what they find on social media accounts. PatronScan scans IDs at bars and restaurants and identifies ‘troublemakers’. A “public” list is shared among all PatronScan customers who then can refuse service to individuals with objectionable behavior. -GEG
