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.

Social Credit - it’s evil and scary

Post by yong » Sun Feb 03, 2019 9:48 am

This is evil and scary, Social Credit is basically imprisonment of the entire nation. What happen if all governments start to do this?

It will be like George Orwell's 1984 novel.

So your social credit score goes down if you buy alcohol from the supermarket...indicating a dependency.

So what happens when you buy cigarettes? :facepalm:

“To recap: China’s system was implemented due to people complaining about the presence of certain allegedly ill-mannered Chinese tourists and the system’s expansion actually eases one’s financial burden of proof before engaging in certain translations or professional behaviours...

Yet in spite of this, the reaction from many US commentators has been one of total hysteria...

And yet there is no doubt that China’s system would be totally unconstitutional in the United States (unless it were voluntary). However, it is equally true that the activities of the NSA in the United States are also totally unconstitutional in the American context, but this has not stopped them from violating the legal rights of American citizens on an hourly basis.“

It must be stressed that while the invention of the so-called social credit system is an internal Chinese matter and nothing beyond, it is true that it was statements from the outside world complaining about a certain type of Chinese tourist which inspired the system’s creation.
Nope, I don't buy it.. bs

Despite the author of the article having an English sounding name, the way English is used in this article, the style and in parts cumbersome, suggests to me the author is not of original English speaking background but Chinese. Not only that but def one sided.
