Annals Of The Police State.....

Yes, this is about China, surely we are different.

Bullcrap, we are exactly the same, this forum is a prime example, the minute you show a modicum of independent thought, the minute you stray off the PC acceptable script, the minute you illustrate the reality, the minute you point out the hypocrisy of the Political Correct stooges - immediately the PC police mob starts swarming.
And since they cannot argue the subject, their attacks are always personal, studded with straw constructs, full of hate and bigotry that they accuse the others.
And outside, it is worse, people are found guilty on non PC behavior, statements, or just plain gossip, lose their jobs, their livelihood and get socially shamed and bullied...

Then you have this new
that China is presenting which is this almost perverse incentive system - it's called the social credit system - where essentially all your different online activities, everything from what you say to what you buy, can all be monitored and is brought together into a single score of your social trustworthiness. So for example, if you buy diapers, your score goes up because you're a good parent. If you play video games too long, your score goes down because you're screwing around. That score then is used to give you rewards in society, everything from free charges of your smartphone at coffee shops, to negative side. You can't take planes. It's used in job evaluations. It's even used in dating profiles, so it affects how attractive the person you're going to be able to go on dates or even marry.

And what's notable about this - what goes in a way that Orwell never could have imagined is the network side of it. Your score reflects not only what you do but what everyone else in your network does. So if, for example, your brother is not being positive enough about the regime online, your score will go down. So then you'll go to your brother and say, hey, you know, get it together. And this is this strange way of using technology in essence to steer us to a behavior that at least in China the government wants.

Pfft, Go read the comments on Fox News if you want personal attacks and PC brigading. If anyone will be keeping list of who said what in America, it will be the people there.

And repeating your article twice does not make it so, you need to do what Pres. Trump does: Repeat it a hundred times.

The trolls' problem, in any language is the inconvenient reality, nihil veritas erubescit...

Personal attacks is a syndrome, you can pick your own examples, but the main subject still is the Police State we have become and raging intolerance of free and independent thinking, anything outside prescribed the PC narrative.....

Sure, everything is about Trump, Trump, Trump.
Bringing up continuously ones' Trump Derangement Syndrome does not make it all about Trump, that obsession is your own problem....
