Chinese Game of life What if your bad deeds could influence your life as a citizen? the dystopian vision of the Chinese surveillance state is not science fiction any more. The Chinese state is setting up a vast ranking system system that will monitor the behaviour of its enormous population, and rank them all based on their "social credit." The "social credit system," first announced in 2014, aims to reinforce the idea that "keeping trust is glorious and breaking trust is disgraceful," according to a government document. At the moment the system is piecemeal — some are run by city councils, others are scored by private tech platforms which hold personal data. Banning you from flying or getting the train.China has already started punishing people by restricting their travel.They can also clamp down on luxury options — three million people are barred from getting businessclass train tickets. Stopping you getting the best jobs. "Trust-breaking" individuals would also be banned from doing management jobs in state-owned firms and big banks.Some crimes, like fraud and embezzlement, would also have a big effect on social credit. Being publicly named as a bad citizen. Naming and shaming is another tactic available. A a 2016 government notice encourages
companies to consult the blacklist before hiring people or giving them contracts.
A prototype blacklist already exists, and has been used to punish people. The list includes individual's names alongside partially redacted ID numbers, while the one on the right shows company names.Li Xiaolin, a lawyer who was placed on the list in 2015, found himself unable to purchase plane tickets home while on a work trip, Human Rights Watch reported. He also couldn't apply for credit cards. There is also a list for good citizens — that will reportedly get you more matches on dating websites. People with high scores can also get discounts on energy bills, rent things without deposits, and get better interest rates at banks.
