This system will come to the USA eventually, it will work in China, it will spread because PEOPLE will want it. And pressure on individuals to conform will come most from those closest to you.


    also...

    here's a seven minute video of how TPTB will control the population.

    This video is amazing and the next level of control...


    a TV show version of this probable future...

    "Black Mirror", episode called "Nosedive" is on netflix and that's the clip in the OP video. Good episode if you have the time.

    The problem isn't that you can be punished, but that your kids can and will.

    Any of us with kids will HAVE TO fall in line or people we dearly love will be punished. In that Black Mirror episode, the truck driver lady said she had a 4.4 score and let it fall to 1.5 because she lost hope and got angry when her 4.2 husband was put further down the medical treatment list when someone with 4.5 got priority and then he died. Sure, just a TV show, but a reflection on future reality.

    Sounds like a similar system to what the Bible says the antichrist will use

    I'm a cash man too. The information trail left behind with even a debit card is insidious. I once went to WalMart to buy groceries, screwed up and had to use my debit card. Bought, among other things, some Tyson Chicken Breasts. On the computer that very night, adverts for Tyson products started popping up.

    The Chinese Communists are a threat to the world, and spying on their own, is just a way to transact business. They are certainly spying on Americans too, and they have excellent programmers to do that with.

    And this right here, I believe they are doing that, and they want to join with the big tech companies.:
    They’ve joined forces with Silicon Valley to cheerlead and lobby for an almost identical system right here in the west.
    Imagine going to buy something and your credit card is declined because some idiot in San Francisco thinks you posted something “hateful” on the Internet.
    1. I finished reading Blackhawk Down, the book, and it was very good. 2. I finished reading The Hunger Games, and it is wilder than the movie is.
    3. I finished Lone Survivor on CD, and I watched the movie, and the book is better. Everybody on that Team should have gotten the Medal Of Honor, but only one man lived. So there were no witnesses.[March 14, 2019]
