Bill Whittle: Get Off the Plane: Your Social Credit Score Just Went Negative

China expands its system of tracking a citizen’s behavior with a social credit score, and limiting his freedoms if it goes negative. Your neighbor reports you smoking a cigarette at your house, and when you try to fly to Hong Kong the flight attendant says, your score is too low, get off the plane. Is this just a dystopian nightmare spawned by communism, or could measures taken by American companies to nudge consumer behavior lead to such a scenario in the land of the free? Right Angle — with Stephen Green, Scott Ott and Bill Whittle — is a production of the Members at BillWhittle.com, who pay to create dozens of new shows each month, run their own Member-written blog, and generally work to advance the message of liberty in the free and communist worlds.
