Social Credit - it’s evil and scary

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

All I can say is that numerous prostitutes and gangsters all seem to have made the trip safely from mainland China to Sihanoukville without being stopped at the border. In other words, the Chinese authorities chose to let them leave the country.

But it take's two to tango on the dance floor and Cambodia chooses to let them in.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Chinese government restricts their movement. No trains, no planes, possibly no taxis. Watched all the time on video, all cell phone and internet data monitored. How are these outsiders going to form their own society?

And are their organs still viable at the time of their arrest?

Sorry, there is a huge chasm of difference between the PRC and West.

Sorry, Paypal preventing people from making money with their site if their political views are not right.
Sorry, a bank cancelling the account of the guy who started Defense Distributed (at the behest of guess which government)
Sorry, Certain youtube accounts with certain viewpoints prevented from monetizing their channels.
Sorry, Milo Yiannopoulos prevented from entering Australia just because of his political viewpoints which the governments says are not moral enough.
Sorry, the youtube channel of anarchist "Josey Outlaw" disappearing without a trace (mmm, wonder who told youtube i.e., google to do that or get one of their licenses cancelled).
Sorry, Microsoft buy Tumblr then promptly cancels the accounts of many many people not for violation of TOS.
Sorry, Twitter doing the same.

Sorry, but most of those "sorrys" are examples of PC gone mad in the west and have little to do with government suppression. We have become so cowed by the screaming left that the government doesn't actually have to do anything!

We easterners envy the west, as their basic rights are so well protected. :bow: please come over and give us some rights. Joking, stay out we like to be oppressed. Unlike to eastern societies, the western people have a free and open mind and are intellectually high developed. All of us are manipulated in some way or another. You guys think china's AI tech and spying softwares are more developed and more in use than in the western countries? Or do you want to say your Constitutions are protecting you? So glad you guys are not manipulated as we are and are absolutely not arrogant and ignorant and want to open our eyes.
Thx again we really don't appreciate it enough.

In Western societies, the media is supposed to be the watchdog of government and keeps it in check. Unfortunately, media is often aligned with a political party and abdicates their job of protecting its citizens. However they do their job sometimes. How else would we know and be discussing all the ways the government eavesdrops on us?

Whether or not easterners enjoy rights and freedom or enjoy being oppressed is up to them.

However, I do not see a beeline of westerners renouncing their home citizenship to be a citizen of North Korea or Syria or Iran.

I do see a lot of easterners wanting a chance to become citizens in a western country. Except for Thais, of course.
