#1 China "Social Credit" Systems

An interesting article on "social credit" systems in China.

I quite like the positive side of this, as it will discourage bad behaviour if used properly. China is not the only society that could benefit from this.

The downside of course is that it can be used by an authoritarian regime to clamp down on all sorts of other freedoms. Particularly where there are unreasonable laws which can be simply ignored at present.
