Beijing is planning to use China’s Social Credit system to allow “good citizens” board trains and subway’s quicker than “bad citizens.” A good social credit score will give people access to a “fast pass” which will allow them to skip checks and go straight on.
Authorities in Beijing said that the city was developing a code of conduct that passengers must follow to receive and then keep the fast pass. Uncivilised behaviour such as eating on trains or carrying the wrong items will be punished.
Passengers with the pass can download it to their phones. Face-scanning technology will be used at station entrances too.
China introduced the social credit system eight years ago. It’s a national database which ranks every citizen according to their behaviour. It’s chillingly simple. Good citizens receive shop discounts and access to special events and services. Bad citizens are punished like being banned from travelling.
Other examples of bad behaviour include not paying bills, parking tickets and playing music too loudly in public. Critics have called it Orwellian. It is that and then some.
Over the years, The Richie Allen Show has featured men and women who have been warning that such a system will be rolled out in the UK and Ireland. The government here is considering whether it’s possible to introduce a so-called vaccine passport.
It has been proposed that proof of vaccination be required for entrance to all manner of venues. Israel is doing it right now. Without a Green Passport, Israeli’s can’t go to the Gym, meet up in hotels, or visit the theatre.
Cabinet Minister Michael Gove is looking into whether such a system can be introduced in the UK. It’s horrifying when you think about it. Good citizens who take the government’s medicine can have a life outside the home.
Bad citizens who refuse the medicine, must isolate from society until they see the error of their ways and roll up their sleeves.
These are worrying times for those who know that the vaccines are both unnecessary and potentially deadly, but may find that they have no choice but to take one. We all need to work to survive. Most of us need to travel overseas from time to time. There are tough times and very tough choices ahead.
