Social Credit - it’s evil and scary

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. 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.

After the First World War the Middle East got into the control of the West. The map and borders are drown by the West. The rulers are set and changed by the West. If the West would stop interfering there would be at least a problem less.
What you say just shows how influenced you are by those enemy images the western mainstream medias are presenting.

you mean you are fine with that you country or the west are exploiting countries and the resources, leaving behind dust and ashes, as long as their own people leave comfortably? But then come back as missionaries and ngos to show them the light.?

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!

Johnny
government pressure exerted quietly in the background is behind a lot of those so called pc gone made events: like the bank that cancelled the account of the inventor of Defense Distributed.
Sorry.

That's one example I can't say I am particularly sorry about.

Street cleaners in parts of China are reportedly being forced to wear GPS-tracking smartwatches so employers can monitor how hard they work, sparking public outrage and concern over increasing mass surveillance across the country.

Soon they will skip the pretense and just start "chipping" everyone at birth. George would love this!

Hard to believe that I just read this...

Darwin rolls out CCP surveillance tech

By Houses and Holes in Australian Politicsat 12:12 am on May 9, 2019 | 42 comments

Australia is preparing to debut its version of the Chinese regime’s high-tech system for monitoring and controlling its citizens. The launch, to take place in the northern city of Darwin, will include systems to monitor people’s activity via their cell phones.

The new system is based on monitoring programs in Shenzhen, China, where the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is testing its Social Credit System. Officials on the Darwin council traveled to Shenzhen, according to NT News, to “have a chance to see exactly how their Smart Technology works prior to being fully rolled out.”

In Darwin, they’ve already constructed “poles, fitted with speakers, cameras and Wi-Fi,” according to NT News, to monitor people, their movements around the city, the websites they visit, and what apps they use. The monitoring will be done mainly by artificial intelligence, but will alert authorities based on set triggers.

One part of me embraces, with caveats, the other part of me crumbles beneath the reality of this. The feeling of no escape, of being a pawn, of scenes from the Matrix.

The village testing China’s social credit system: driven by big data, its citizens earn a star rating
Set to be rolled out by next year, the scheme is the nation’s most ambitious project in social engineering since the Cultural Revolution. Whether it eventually creates an Orwellian dystopia, or an honest, harmonious society, as intended, remains to be seen

Sleepy Yangqiao village sits among tea bushes and pomegranate trees in eastern Zhejiang province. It is also at the forefront of China’s most ambitious social-engineer­ing project since the Cultural Revolution, which spanned 10 years from 1966.

Posted by every front door in Yangqiao is a sign ranking the household on a scale of one to five stars for courtyard tidiness, observance of laws, recycling and rubbish disposal, financial credit and “family values”. These ratings feed into a score assigned to each resident – from 0 to 100 points – available via a digital dashboard in the village hall, where people can report themselves and their neighbours for “good” deeds (ardent dedication to your job earns three points) or “bad” ones (littering in the river docks incurs the loss of five points).

Villagers with better scores can enjoy perks such as free soap, napkins and more credit with lower interest rates. Soon, those with lower scores will be named and shamed on a blacklist posted on a commu­nity bulletin board.

Yangqiao, a community of 1,200, is an unlikely pioneer of the government’s social credit system, first envisioned in the 1990s. Blending Western-style financial credit scores with broader measures, the approach aims to regulate the behaviour of com­panies and individuals. Citizens who conduct themselves in the approved manner can benefit from on-the-spot loans and better job prospects. Those found guilty of infractions can find them­selves blacklisted and denied high-speed train tickets or denounced in public.
