China are ramping up the Orwellian nightmare to new heights by introducing a credit score system that can be adversely affected by a persons hobbies, shopping habits, lifestyles, literature read online, social media comments, social connections, and political opinion.
Big data is sucking in everything about citizens as algorithms evaluate that data, but the Chinese government is leveraging that data and “smart data” analysis that “reveals even casual relationships” in order to create a comprehensive credit score system which “determines your opportunities for life.”
Yes the score does measure the ability to pay, but “this is the most staggering, publicly announced, scaled use of big data I’ve ever seen,” said Silicon Valley entrepreneur Michael Fertik; he is also the author of The Reputation Economy. “It certainly feels about as Orwellian as your nightmares would have it be.”
The new “social credit system” is linked to 1.3 billion Chinese citizens’ national ID cards, scoring them on their behavior and the “activities of friends in your social graph—the people you identify as friends on social media.” Citizens’ credit scores, or “Citizen Scores,” are affected by their own political opinions and the political opinions of their friends as well.
The system leverages “all the tools of the information age—electronic purchasing data, social networks, algorithmic sorting—to construct the ultimate tool of social control,” according to Jay Stanley, Senior Policy Analyst for the ACLU Speech, Privacy & Technology Project.
The new Chinese credit score will be mandatory by 2020, but citizens can currently track their score via a free “Sesame Credit” app.
A citizen’s status, or credit score that ranges from 350 to 950, is available for everyone to view via Credit China. Citizens with higher scores are rewarded; a score of 600, for example, qualifies for an “instant loan” of about $800. At 650, renting a car no longer requires a deposit. At 700, a citizen is fast-tracked for a Singapore travel permit; higher travel visas such as to Europe will be granted for even higher scores. A specific high score may be required to get specific high-status and influential jobs.
“With the help of the latest internet technologies the government wants to exercise individual surveillance,” stated Rogier Creemers, a Belgian China-specialist at Oxford University. “Government and big internet companies in China can exploit ‘Big Data’ together in a way that is unimaginable in the West.”
I am warning now the reason MY presence is not being felt as before is because I am grieving. I am weeping for what I must do very soon.
Did they listen to this Prophet who I now use when I warned beforehand that China would taste MY anger through earthquakes, the biggest one has not yet occurred but it is coming.They have killed so many of MY Children, and tortured and imprisoned MY Children, MY Messengers. For this, the government will pay mightily and the country will be ripped apart with earthquakes as they seek to divide MY People and turn them away from ME for fear of openly worshipping the God they once served and now fear to openly serve. As they have divided MY People so I will divide their land.
Satan now controls the government of this nation and nations around this world. You are to submit to the governments only as much as they submit to YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA. For the government is upon the shoulders of YAHUSHUA HE alone paid the price! MY people are to obey the GOD they serve and not Man. Pray the corrupt governments will be defeated and the Holy ones will arise taking back what was stolen.
Trust not in the governments of this world to protect you for you will find no protection there. Trust in the GOD that created you who knows every molecule, every atom, every cell, every one of your DNA and each one of you is individual but I know each one of you by your GOD given names. Pray to ME and I will give you wisdom, I will bring others into your path for I have raised up the hidden ones to give you wisdom at this time, to take care of this Temple of the RUACH ha KODESH. Use everything that I have given you for YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA’s glory while you yet have it to use. Satan seeks to strip you bare but don’t worry MY Children, I will cover you. They can pass all the ungodly bills they want your politicians and your leaders; it is only what I YAHUVEH allow that will come to pass.
