Unsettling Black Mirror Episode is Going to Literally Become Reality by 2020

If you want to see where the world will be if citizens are defenseless, docile, and indifferent to the control grid that is set up around them, just take a look at China.

Because China appears to be the geopolitical enemy of the Western powers, the mainstream media doesn’t mind reporting on the fact that, according to the NY Post, “China’s chilling dictatorship is moving quickly to introduce social scorecards by which all citizens will be monitored 24/7 and ranked on their behavior. The Communist Party’s plan is for every one of its 1.4 billion citizens to be at the whim of a dystopian social credit system, and it’s on track to be fully operational by the year 2020.”

That’s right: and if any other government had convinced it’s people, or ruthlessly beat into their people, this same culture of docile compliance, they would also abuse this and take surveillance to its extreme. In China, what is happening is said to perfectly align with what happened in an episode of “Black Mirror.”

This is what power does, this is the end result of every society with today’s technology that doesn’t contain a strong culture of rebellious, well protected, independent people. And these days, the powers that be are doing their very best to make sure no culture is friendly to privacy, self defense, or anything of the like.

Take a look at this. This is a facial recognition system being shown on a display during the “1st Digital China Summit” at Strait International Conference and Exhibition Center in Fuzhou, China.

It’s called an active pilot program, where millions of Chinese residents are assigned a social credit score out of 800, to either lose the ability to use basic transportation and things a person needs, or reap a few meaningless “benefits.” It’s not really a pilot though, in China if you’re an activist, you could be literally banned from taking flights, trains, owning property, all of those things.

A sophisticated network of 200 million surveillance cameras is how the credit score is being assigned. Surveillance cameras, always watching to make sure people are extra docile, extra boot-licking, extra good workers are now having an actual impact on the lives of people having to deal with all of this and enjoy their lives.

Continuing from the NY Post, “The program has been enabled by rapid advances in facial recognition, body scanning and geo-tracking.

The data is combined with information collected from individuals’ government records — including medical and educational — along with their financial and internet browsing histories. Overall scores can go up and down in “real time” dependent on the person’s behavior, but they can also be affected by people they associate with.”

“The mandatory “social credit” system was first announced in 2014 in a bid to reinforce the notion that “keeping trust is glorious and breaking trust is disgraceful,” according to a government document.”

If you lick a lot of boots and slave really hard for your masters in China, you might have your deposit on rental cars and hotels waived. You probably spent all the time you should have been at home with your family striving to make another man rich while being disrespected by him, but hey, you have cheaper access to meaningless material objects so you can spend more money. Welcome to China.

One of the people cheerfully slaving away in this bleak system, Dandan, a young mother and “marketing professional,” is proud of her high score, believing that in 20 years if anything is anywhere near recognizable in the world, her infant son may be able to get into a “top school.”

“China likes to experiment in this creative way…I think people in every country want a stable and safe society,” she said.

“We need a social credit system. We hope we can help each other, love each other and help everyone to become prosperous.”

Unbelievable: China has their own people so abused, so docile and utterly brainwashed they are lapping up their own slavery with delight. Someone needs to introduce that entire country to cannabis.

Overlooking the fact that China is a ruthless dictatorship that tries to neuter and dominate all the people who live there, those international academics and people who may have participated in that summit, they should be utterly ashamed.

People don’t stand up for themselves anymore, they are too weak to resist the impending surveillance grid, and that’s not meant to be a negative affirmation, but a grim admission. If people don’t actively resist surveillance nothing will stop America from being like China, and other countries like the UK, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, they may be even closer to total surveillance.

In fact, in New Zealand where nothing ever happens, where the security at the Auckland airport is mostly composed of laid back native people, they are going to start issuing $5000 fines to people who refuse electronic “strip searches.” Even in places where not a damn thing dangerous ever happens, the state is thirsty, utterly hungry for more control.
