I don't know if this would really work in democracy countries. I could mainly see it working in countries that the government already has a strong grip on the population, like North Korea, and China.



I dont know, what if they offered to do you credit reviews based on something like this instead of your credit score? I know a lot of people who would go for that.

Credit scores are already misused everywhere imagine using your social network score. Pretty slippery slope.

I can see many western governments thinking this is a good idea, and many people falling for it.

China has stopped trying to pretend anymore, huh?

What else would you expect from a country that's supporting North Korea?

To stop seeing Dreamworks movies or Transformers sequels would help, too.

It seems disturbing. I disagree with the fundamental premise of the "game".

The video assumes a great deal about events that may or may not happen 5+ years from now though, and how it will affect society. I would be more interested in reading what experts and people knowledgeable about the program think than the shock-value speculations of a Youtube kid who runs a channel dedicated to video games.

The Chinese government isn't even being subtle about this blatant attempt to control their citizens, and yet I think it's going to work out for them. We really do live in scary times

Or visiting pretty much any store, plus the supermarket





.......as far as gamification

Corporations already use gamification to keep employees in line, so I don't see why countries shouldn't

It is pretty scary, but it could end up hurting China in the end. People with high scores are going to push away those with low scores, but the people with low scores won't. This means you end up with a bunch of people who aren't pro-china being friends together, and maybe even seeking each other out.
