Social credit scores in China

I remember reading this a few months ago. At the time I thought it was just a passing thought, but apparently China is looking to implement it

Not sure how this bodes for other parts of the world, but this seems very Orwellian in practice.

This reminds me of an episode of The Twilight Zone from the 80s, "To See The Invisible Man". When a slightly futuristic American society, when someone did something egregious, the police came to their house, put some contraption on their head and temporarily burn a mark into their forehead. From that moment on (for the next 365 days), while they had this mark on their head, society knew not to interact with them. He tried to buy things at the store, and they wouldn't let him check out. No one would even talk to him or they could get in trouble too. He hurt himself at one point, got on the computer to talk to a doctor or nurse. He covered his head but when they made him reveal his forehead, they cut him off. Eventually, the police came back into his house (without talking to him), and took the mark on his forehead off, then acted like nothing happened.

It's a horrific idea.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.
