Liberal government heading down the Chinese social score slippery slope using facial recognition to identify dissenters

Australia on track with Canada to catalogue its citizens

No sooner has Xi Jinping donned the mantle of “Paramount” Leader-for-life and ramped-up Internet censorship than the “social credit” system outlined in 2014 has been unleashed upon the Chinese public, with people now being barred from air travel or riding on trains if their social credit score is found to be lacking, under the “Once untrustworthy, always restricted” policy.

A few months ago, I researched a story about China’s new Sesame Credit-powered social rating system, with China’s answer to Jeff Bezos, Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba Group Ltd. as one of its architects. The new Chinese social credit system merges individual credit and legal records and social media accounts, claiming to foster “sincerity culture” and “traditional virtues” to improve the honesty a creditworthiness of society as a whole.

Australia is the western world’s guinea pig for a massive citizen surveillance system soon to match that of China where innocent people are jailed for having biometrically assessed ‘bad thoughts’.  Your assessment can lower your social credit score making you unable to participate in the trappings of life and relegated to a second rate citizen status

If your “citizen ranking” sinks too low, you cannot travel, buy property, send your child to a good school or even eat at a nice restaurant. Every aspect of life factors in. Online shopping habits are traced, with certain purchases dragging down your score, such as video games. The government looks at your bills, your school records, whether you jaywalk and even whether you visit your parents enough. Your social media accounts are checked for any form of dissent. Your score can tank, cutting you off from your life if your enter the wrong numbers while paying a court fee, as Chinese journalist, Liu Hu found out, according to 9News in Australia.

The final version of this scoring system is set to be implemented in 2020. It will relay real-time data reports to government officials, law enforcement and maybe to certain private citizens. Law enforcement is currently testing eye glasses with advanced facial recognition software that pull data from national databases, to instantly recognize criminals or political dissidents and which could conceivably be plugged into this social credit system.

This is not an Orwellian freak show reserved for an increasingly repressive Communist state. A Sesame Credit-type Carrot Rewards app has already been rolled out in Canada, in what James Corbett calls a “merger of behavioural science, gaming and government.”

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understand the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head this year.

  1. Hi Maryanne, regards to you and John, It is interesting that as we are 13hrs behind you your copy of Cairns News came into my emails ahead of my copy as I also subscribe to it,

    This is what I have been trying to get people to accept for years, their usual response is “ Our Government wouldn’t do that to us,

    I first became aware of the start of surveillance back in 1992 with the in road surveillance pads in the secondary roads around where I live, its just got worse as the years have gone on,

    Regards Joan n Me..

    Regards Former Australian Senator Len Harris
