🇨🇳 China bans millions with low ‘social credit’ from rail, air travel | Al Jazeera English



Millions of Chinese people have been banned from travelling on planes and trains as the government expands its social credit programme that ranks people’s trustworthiness.
In 2018, more than 17 million people with low scores were barred from buying flight tickets, and another five million were banned from using high-speed trains.
Nearly four million Chinese companies have been blacklisted from a number of activities, including bidding on projects, taking part in land auctions and issuing corporate bonds.
Human rights activists have raised concerns over China’s bid to assign a personal score to each of its 1.4 billion citizens, in order to encourage good behaviour.
Dan Wang, a China analyst for the Economist Intelligence Unit, talks to Al Jazeera about the controversial move.

  1. China needs to decide if its citizens and local communities are capable of cultivating good social character on their own or if they are merely LEGO pieces to be shaped by unelected, unaccountable CPC autocrats.

  2. Chinese tourists being rude, aggressive and obnoxious – people go "OMG, THEY SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO TRAVEL"
    The Chinese Government actually does something about it: "OMGGG, IT'S BLACK MIRROR MEETS 1984"

  3. "whether they visit their parents on time…"

  4. Xi Jinping is a control freak. They've used it massively to repress dissidents of the CCP already. Hummm… I wonder what's emperor Xi's score??!!

  5. Xi jinping Winnie the Pooh

  6. You said better way to govern? dont you mean dictate

  7. Not true, only people owns money , refuse to payback after court trial will be banded. Be smart not be fooled by this girl

  8. So the banned people have history of bad behavior on transports?

  9. it seems good, it makes sure China doesnt become like West. preserve Asian values.seems like good idea to me.

  10. How self hating for her to say things so exaggerated.

  11. Red China needs to be broken up permanently. Increase African and middle eastern immigration now in Red China to save the world from Han racist nationalism forever…

  12. Time to nuke China into oblivion.

  13. Welcome hellcome to the NWO totalitarian nightmare! ☜💀

  14. That episode from Black Mirror is the real deal in China.

  15. This what happens when government has absolute power.

  16. The Communist Party is afraid of losing power.

  17. The Chinese government is doing what it feels is best for its own people. As long as the Chinese government doesn't tell the people of foreign nations what to do, then there isn't a problem. Let it run this experiment. I'd like to see what happens.

  18. during this serious interview, her bunny hat though lol

  19. Since they don't teach respect in school, the state needs to intervene as adults. For example, having their kids take dumps in garbage cans or on the floor of a high speed train. Ban sounds good.
