Imagine being told that your own credit scores are low, because you have a friend with a low credit score, and you called them, or had them as a friend online. Perhaps it’s because you criticized the government. This is not a sci-fi novel, this is happening in China now, where 2 1/2 million can’t buy plane tickets, and 90,000 can’t even buy high speed rail. Worse yet, is that there are advocates of doing that… here.
Chinese citizens are punished by having their social credit score lowered for engaging in a number of different behaviors, including;

– Bad driving.
– Smoking on trains.
– Buying too many video games.
– Buying too much junk food.
– Buying too much alcohol.
– Calling a friend who has a low credit score .
– Having a friend online who has a low credit score.
– Posting “fake news” online.
– Criticizing the government.
– Visiting unauthorized websites.
– Walking your dog without a leash.
– Letting your dog bark too much.
