China Expands Program to Rate Citizen Behavior and Punish Those with Low Scores

March 21, 2018 Daily Caller 0

Chinese authorities have been using a “social credit” system that rates citizens to determine if they may purchase plane or train tickets. The system rates users on personal characteristics, behavior and preference, social relationships. It draws data from a person’s shopping history, use of free time, and complaints from others. It has the appearance of being impartial and based on public demand but, in reality, it is merely a sophisticated method of engineering human behavior.
