Part 2 We carried this over to a 2nd segment because Kelly and Jeremy wanted to respond!
If you look at the story of 1984 and the government spying – Orwell – was right but if you look at the picture of what he was painting about government surveillance and controlling the people with a totalitarian government.
It painted a very bleak picture of the future where all the government was interested in was power and controlling the people. “Big Brother is Watching you” If you watch the movie it is heart breaking.
The book was written in 1948 – and no we are 71 year past that – and was Orwell offering a prediction of the future?
He was only describing the tip of the ice berg.
President Xi Jinping of China is poised to rule the country indefinitely after Chinese lawmakers passed changes to the country’s constitution abolishing presidential term limits.
The amendment was sure to pass the country’s rubber-stamp legislature, the National People’s Congress, which voted 2,958 in favor, Of the 2,963 two opposed and three abstaining.
“In some ways, the move represents the end of China’s 40-year-long reform era,”
400 million surveillance cameras in China.
FACIAL RECOGNITION They can trace you walking down the street from one of Millions of cameras.
Imagine living in a world where everything you do – people you spend time with is all tracked! And Then a score is assigned to those actions.
Social Credit Scoring –
Buy clothes or diapers 0 that’s good –
Buy alcohol or cigarettes or too many video games – its not good –
A higher score puts you in model citizen range and gets you discounts and the ability to rent things with out putting down a deposit.
People that have a “model citizen” score – think it is great – because they know that they won’t be punished if they haven’t done anything wrong! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?
When It goes national Social Credit scores will be assigned to everyone of China’s citizens for LIFE!
And yet – so many people seem okay with it!
Liu Hu was born and raised in Yubei District of Chongqing.
In the middle of 2013, during the Anti-Corruption Campaign of the Communist Party of China, Liu Hu accused a government official of corruption in real-name reporting. On August 23, 2013, Liu Hu was detained by the Beijing police for defamation, then he was held in Beijing Detention Center
Liu ultimately lost his case and was forced to publish an apology and pay a fine. However, he refused to pay an additional fine levied by the court.
After this case, Liu’s standing in the Chinese Social Credit System was damaged, and he was effectively confined to his residence in Chongqing. His social media accounts were shut down and his ability to purchase train tickets was legally restricted. He has become blackballed.

There is even an app – and will show you – who around you is in dept!
Algorithmic surveillance ramps things up. With AI they can keep track of everything!
I wonder if the Government will penalize citizens that steel foreign intellectual property. Ie Sean Begonia. Will they citizens be encouraged to be ethical in the international market?
You Start will 1000 points – and you can print out your report at any time.
Jaywalking, tossing cigarette butts or telling gossip will doc you points.
Cameras do a lot of the work – but they also employ citizens (information collector) to keep a report of what they see…. Walks around and writes down deeds about her neighbors.
“I overheard a farmer swearing and speaking disrespectfully? Yeah he’s in my report!”
Her quota is 10 a month…. Think about that!
The problem might be that it isn’t one system – different places have different rules and if that is case – what kind of homework do you have to do before you take a trip. You need to learn about the rule of where you are going?!
What is you are a citizen with a poor citizen credit.
So I wonder how this happened?
In big Brother’s defense.
We need to put this in perspective.
China went from extreme poverty to economic giant pretty quickly.
There was not economic Credit score. No credit history.
The Citizens all of the sudden had opportunities they never had before – they could default on loans and get away with it. Counterfeit goods… there was a real issue with trust…
“Not in our Country!”
Now I love convenience just as much as the next guy…. But!
For more than 100 years – the telephone companies have provided wiretapping assistance to governments.
Our phones and the hardware that facilitates our conversations – were created first and foremost for surveillance.
When you are talking to anyone. On the phone – you are being listened to.
But if you have an Iphone – calling an Iphone – or What App (as of 2015) all was good- and you had your privacy BY DEFAULT. And governments were very upset. They feel they have a job to do and keep the people safe and that means they need access to conversations of bad guys.
Phones don’t just listen to you
They Track you – even if they don’t have an SIM CARD OR WIFI connection. THEY STORE THE DATA – AND THEN AS SOON AS THEY GET A CONNECTION TO THE INTERNET… Bam!
Look what Our government is building – Behold the NSA Data Center.
5 times bigger than the biggest Ikea you have ever been in.
This is the NSA Data Center In Utah! A super computing center and a data storage center.
Basically, a huge ware house filled with hard drives storing data.
It is 5 X bigger than the biggest Ikea store you have ever been in.
NOT MY GOVERNMENT! Well look at was in the headlines just yesterday….
