Social Credit Scores Are Here to Ruin Your Life

Theoretically, it would be nice if we lived in a society where all the lowlifes were excluded from things like public transportation, the gym, bars and restaurants, the workplace and other public spaces.

In theory, the idea of a social credit score is great: a scoring system for all Americans to determine the quality of individual people in order to both ensure the bad people don’t ruin everything for the rest of us, and to discourage toxic behavior.

But that’s where the praise ends.

Because a social credit rating system would inevitably be abused to further disenfranchise and immiserate those with the Wrong Views–that’s you and me.

Hell, we’re already being financially blacklisted by the megabanking cartel, attacked in public and censored online.

A social credit rating system would only make it that much easier to make our lives miserable and discourage others from challenging the Uniparty consensus.

The problem isn’t the idea of a social credit rating system–the problem is who would be in charge of it, and how they would inevitably abuse the system.

Unfortunately, I’m sure you know where this is going: a social credit system in some form already exists here in America.

No longer a “conspiracy theory,” Fast Company just ran an article detailing the many ways in which Americans are already subjected to a Chinese-style social credit rating system:

“Have you heard about China’s social credit system? It’s a technology-enabled, surveillance-based nationwide program designed to nudge citizens toward better behavior. The ultimate goal is to “allow the trustworthy to roam everywhere under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step,” according to the Chinese government.

In place since 2014, the social credit system is a work in progress that could evolve by next year into a single, nationwide point system for all Chinese citizens, akin to a financial credit score. It aims to punish for transgressions that can include membership in or support for the Falun Gong or Tibetan Buddhism, failure to pay debts, excessive video gaming, criticizing the government, late payments, failing to sweep the sidewalk in front of your store or house, smoking or playing loud music on trains, jaywalking, and other actions deemed illegal or unacceptable by the Chinese government.

It can also award points for charitable donations or even taking one’s own parents to the doctor.Punishments can be harsh, including bans on leaving the country, using public transportation, checking into hotels, hiring for high-visibility jobs, or acceptance of children to private schools. It can also result in slower internet connections and social stigmatization in the form of registration on a public blacklist.

China’s social credit system has been characterized in one pithy tweet as “authoritarianism, gamified.”

And it’s already here:

“Many Westerners are disturbed by what they read about China’s social credit system. But such systems, it turns out, are not unique to China. A parallel system is developing in the United States, in part as the result of Silicon Valley and technology-industry user policies, and in part by surveillance of social media activity by private companies.

The New York State Department of Financial Services announced earlier this year that life insurance companies can base premiums on what they find in your social media posts. That Instagram pic showing you teasing a grizzly bear at Yellowstone with a martini in one hand, a bucket of cheese fries in the other, and a cigarette in your mouth, could cost you. On the other hand, a Facebook post showing you doing yoga might save you money.”

These insurance scammers will never stop thinking of ways to avoid paying you out. But the insurance example is pretty tame and not all that surprising to learn about.

Nor is the fact that Uber and Airbnb not only have driver ratings but also rider ratings, which means you.

But this technology, called “PatronScan,” is something I’d never heard of before reading this article:

“PatronScan helps spot fake IDs—and troublemakers. When customers arrive at a PatronScan-using bar, their ID is scanned. The company maintains a list of objectionable customers designed to protect venues from people previously removed for “fighting, sexual assault, drugs, theft, and other bad behavior,” according to its website. A “public” list is shared among all PatronScan customers. So someone who’s banned by one bar in the U.S. is potentially banned by all the bars in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada that use the PatronScan system for up to a year. (PatronScan Australia keeps a separate system.)

Judgment about what kind of behavior qualifies for inclusion on a PatronScan list is up to the bar owners and managers. Individual bar owners can ignore the ban, if they like. Data on non-offending customers is deleted in 90 days or less. Also: PatronScan enables bars to keep a “private” list that is not shared with other bars, but on which bad customers can be kept for up to five years.

PatronScan does have an “appeals” process, but it’s up to the company to grant or deny those appeals.”

You can see how easily PatronScan will be expanded beyond just the bar and restaurant industry. It’ll be everywhere before long.

And these are just a few examples of the private company-enacted social credit scoring that we know of. We have a good idea of what big tech companies like Facebook, Google, Twitter and Amazon are already doing to discourage dissident political views, but I’m sure we don’t know the full extent of it.

Nor do we know exactly what’s coming next. For instance, this:

But the main thing the leftwing companies will come after is your money: expect a future where the wrong political views will cost you a well-paying job.

The choice will be simple: get in line with the Globalist Uniparty Agenda or live in squalor, barely able to feed yourself.

The Constitution is now basically irrelevant because it’s not the government doing the oppressing, it’s private tech monopolies

A Step Closer to 1984

This is military-grade gaslighting from the Washington Post:

dsafdsffdsdsfsfdsafsf.PNG

Um, a President making a political argument isn’t “propaganda.” It’s politics.

We need to establish an Iron Law: whenever the “media” accuses our side of some offense, they, not us, are invariably guilty, and egregiously so, of that very thing.

They’re the fucking propagandists.

It is pure gaslighting and full-on psychological abuse to accuse Trump of propagandizing. He’s the President. Every President since the invention of the television has gone on TV to make his case for his preferred policies.

The difference now is that Trump is the first one to actually pose a threat to the Uniparty’s grip on power.

A couple more points about this headline:

  1. It’s in the “Style” section?
  2. “The Washington Post: Democracy Dies in Darkness.” The article headline directly below it: Smother this President’s message in darkness. But I guess “Democracy” for them is a subjective term: only certain groups and politicians qualify for it.

But the most important takeaway here is that they are now comfortable with floating the idea of censoring President Trump so that he cannot get his message to the American people. They want to leverage their power over our televisions. It won’t be long until they actually do it.

It will probably happen before the 2020 election, honestly. They can’t take the risk that Trump is reelected, so they’ll go full 1984 on him in order to stop him.

They’re claiming this is to prevent Orange Man from “spreading misinformation” and “propaganda”–because they’re the only ones who get to do that!–but it’s obvious they want to “edit” and censor him because he’s too effective at making the case for his policies and worldview, and against theirs.

The Uniparty Elite cannot simply allow a guy like Trump to undermine them and all the power they have amassed over the past several decades simply because Trump had the audacity to get elected President.

They had a good thing going for a long time, and Trump is ruining it. So now they’re openly floating the idea of silencing the President of the United States.

This is nothing new, either: they’ve wanted to ban him from Twitter for a while.

And now a Washington Post writer thinks the networks should decide what a President can and cannot say to the nation:

“After Tuesday night’s debacle in the Oval Office, television network executives should be spending the day in their spacious offices practicing a simple word: No.

No, Mr. President, you may not break into prime-time programming to fundraise and mislead.

They’ll need to practice because you can be sure that the request will come again. And again.

Let’s be clear: There was no — zero — news in President Trump’s address to the nation last night.

There were high-drama quotes: “crisis of the soul.” There was fearmongering: “I’ve met with dozens of families whose loved ones were stolen by illegal immigration.”

But there wasn’t anything of substance that we haven’t heard many times before.”

If they had their way, Trump would never be allowed to say what he wants on TV. He would never be allowed to make his case for his preferred policies. The TV networks would overrule him. They’d say, “No, Trump, you’re not allowed to say this on our network. We don’t believe there is any substance. The nation does not need to hear this.” And then he would be banned from Twitter so he couldn’t make his case there, too.

The bottom line is that they want to regain control over the messaging. They want to cut him off from the American people.

They want him entirely silenced, and it’s because he’s too effective. It is absolutely not because he lies so much. It’s because they lie so much and cannot allow the American people to hear the truth.

I’m done pretending any of this is motivated by honest political disagreement, too.

This is a ruling oligarchy desperate to crush all dissent. Nothing more.

Other liberal fascists like Don Lemon have promoted the idea of putting Trump’s speeches on tape delay so that The Networks, who know what’s best for us, can decide what the we see and, more importantly what we don’t.

Don’t worry, they’re going to just censor out All Of Trump’s Lying Lies because they don’t need them clouding our perfectly molded and programmed minds. They’re just going to show us the highlights–only the stuff that’s relevant and deemed appropriate!

I, for one, appreciate the Ministry of Truth’s looking out for us. They have our best interests in mind, not their own!

Big Brother Loves Me Back!

Y’know, it would probably be best if they just censored Trump out of our lives entirely.

They Know Best.

Got that?

John Sexton brings up a great point:

“Wasn’t it just a few weeks ago that the media rallied around Jim Acosta to ensure he wouldn’t lose his press access to shout things at the President? Now the same people want to take the public microphone away from the President himself. And they expect us to believe partisanship has nothing to do with it.”

If Jim Acosta loses his White House Press pass and can no longer freely shout partisan talking points over the President, it is the greatest crisis of human rights in the history of Western Civilization.

But it is Responsible and Good for them to censor the President and determine what he can and cannot say to the nation over the airwaves.

Enemy. Of. The People.

More and more each day I’m convinced this country is already past the point of no return. There is no reasoning with people who are this malevolent and controlling.

The political divide is not between two competing but equal sides, left and right. It’s between the ruling class and the subjects.

It’s dominant culture vs. counterculture. The People vs. the Deep State.

You might disagree with your neighbor on healthcare or what the marginal tax rate should be, but ultimately you’re going to be on the same side when the shit hits the fan because at the end of the day, you’re both Subjects of the ruling class.

Right now in France, left and right have basically converged in their mutual disgust and discontent with the government: the Yellow Vests come from across the political spectrum. The movement has transcended politics and become a popular rebellion against the ruling class.

That’s what the future holds in America. It’ll be top vs. bottom, not left vs. right.
