See, this is just the kind of thing that appeals to “progressives.”
Aided by some 200 million facial-recognition cameras in strategic places, Red China’s “social credit” system last month banned 2.5 million “untrustworthy citizens” from traveling by plane–and another 90,000 from traveling by high-speed trail (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7372431/China-bans-millions-untrustworthy-citizens-taking-planes-month.html).
So far more than 13 million people have been classified as “untrustworthy,” based on their “daily behavior” and social media activities. According to the Chinese government, this is the way to “restore morality.” Meanwhile, “credible citizens” will be rewarded with an assortment of perks.
Yeahbut, yeahbut, yeahbut! If you don’t say or write or do anything bad, you’ve got nothing to worry about!
Providing the highly-computerized system doesn’t mistake you for someone else who’s not so nice.
And of course now every little thing you do wrong is literally a federal offense.
Why do libs go for this sort of thing?
Simply, they can’t tell the difference between government and God.
I pray we have enough sanity left in this country to keep them from ever taking power here. That must not happen ever again.
