    I have no fucking idea.
    Stumbled across this today - http://www.geek.com/news/every-chin...e-based-on-how-they-live-and-conform-1635832/

    As if the Chinese government didnt want more control, every citizen within the next 5 years will have to follow a regime similar to Psycho-Pass (hopefully minus the Dominator guns and the exploding body parts but hey ho its China, anything can happen)

    I've only posted this to ask - What are your opinions on this? Would it work? Is it a viable method of control?

    Good, let's assign numerical values to how much worth someone has as a human being. Great idea.

    Away from this shithole
    I see nothing wrong with having a score based on your assets, credit's score and such. It's all information they already have, so what's the big deal?

    However, this part scares me:

    It's the only part of the plan that I'm highly against. Only assets, income and credit history should be used for the score. Hell, maybe criminal record too, but NOT political views and such. What's next, -5 points if you don't have a patriotic tatoo on your ass?

    Maybe Psycho-Pass is a foretelling of the future? Good thing I'm not part of it because with all the sh!t I post around here my score would be roughly -999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999,999.999

    I am not so sure what the fuss is about.
    It seems like creditscore v2.

    They spied on them anyway- now they show you directly what they don't like.
    It's a win/win.

    The government can influence people-
    and people can learn what not to do to piss off the government- and how to get good rep to gain status in the system which leads to better status of life in that country.

    Sounds good considering how things already are.

    This is a great way for them to find political dissidents to arrest ;)

    Imagine all those little remarks you say add up.

    So what happens when your score is really bad ?
    If nothing at all happens I don't think this will affect anyone really much except for a few "super citizen" who would think they are awesome because they have a good score noone would coare much.
    But as it is China they might actually execute anyone that goes below the 350 points ...


    I really don't like China at all, they are allways searching for ways to make the life of their people worse, and if this would not be enough they try to make it look like any of their neigbour countrys is at fault -.-V
    Maybe I am a little bit biased as I often read Japanese news reporting about all the bad and evel things the chinese do but there are neough other sources that are not from the evel neighbours that say similiar bad things about china + whenever I have been in Asia, the Chinese tourists were like a horde of wild monkeys running trough the streets ignoring that there are other people and just doing as they like -.- ... worst folks ever.

    Don't worry, the communist party will collapse any day, just like the Soviet Union.

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. The soviet union collapsed because of ethnic tensions and poor economic policy. China has neither of these issues.

    But they have alot of other issues. Check the China Uncesored youtube channel, it has a bit of american propaganda but it's funny and very informative.

    This is inevitable in an unregulated corporate dictatorship like China. I'm surprised Walmart didn't think of it for their employees first.

    Lol it's okay, they probably would have done it already if it was at all legal. I'm not giving them any new ideas.

    Worth noting that the US is responsible for introducing China to their current capitalist-at-all-costs mentality that their government employs.

    China is more similar to the US during the industrial revolution. The U.S. is no longer a laissez faire state and has many socialist institutions.

    Consider public schooling, medicaid, medicare, food stamps, social security etc.

    The U.S. workers mounted a revolution in the form of trade unions. The reason so many countries outcompete the U.S. today is because of its strict regulations which hamper unbridled capitalism.

    Imagine if there were no social institutions or minimum wage, people would be forced to do low paying jobs to survive. If it weren't for U.S. social laws, the U.S. might have more factories than China.

    Would you expect less from a COMMUNIST country? The USA is headed in the same direction fast... KING OBAMA!
