China is introducing a new social order with the implementation of a mandatory social credit system, expected to be fully operational in 2020.
The government in restricted societies are afraid to lose the grip on their citizens and became more aggressive in using control like the social credit system. Will social media help speak up , or will artificial intelligence controlled by governments, atomize any attempt of freedom?
This system will collect information on all aspects of people’s lives such as behavior, purchases, and social media friends and activities. Citizens will be rated regarding their adherence to laws and compliance with the government’s ideological framework. The score is designed to inflict punishment or provide positive rewards.
In the Land of the Free, dehumanization is taking another form, as employees are forced to act like robots--the labor force in distribution centers, factories, and large facilities,each movement of the workers daily routine is being timed, analyzed, and rated. To survive in working conditions such as this slaves of this world suppress pain and stress until the shift is over.
We are being drained by today’s mind robbing technology. We are expected to follow, obey, and mutate, into beings tailored by the powerful and blessed by governments. Individuality will be taken out just like privacy - as cherished aspects of our lives we will no longer have.
