If you want to know exactly what this is like, go and watch the social media episode of “Black Mirror”, this sounds exactly like it.
Past actions will follow you for the rest of your life.
China may be forcing this through early, but I find it inconceivable that systems like this will not be ubiquitous in 20 years unless people are able to wrestle back their privacy from big data companies and government. 20 years ago it would be unthinkable that Cambridge Analytica would be doing what it was doing and utterly subverting the world’s democracies and have many people just shrug their shoulders and say, well obviously they’re using our data like that. CA is just the tip of this iceberg.
Not only will people be less likely to go against the system because they care about their loved ones, it’ll also ensure that your loved ones are automatically agents of the government who will probably abandon you, or even report you, if you do anything that might damage their position. It’s creepy as hell.
