China’s ‘Digital Dictatorship’… and Ours

China’s “social credit” system is widely viewed as a kind of “digital dictatorship,” where not only does illegal or anti-social behavior result in lower scores and therefore less privileges, but political dissent also earns one lower “social credit” scores.

  1. ” political dissent also earns one lower “social credit” scores. ”

    No, political dissent is constitutionally protected. Political mischief–like taking money from a foreign power for advocating the violent overthrow of the government–will definitely hurt your social credit score.

    When writing about China, remember that its people trust their government and fully approve of its policies, including Social Credit.
