China’s social credit system shows its teeth, banning millions from taking flights, trains

    Annual report shows the businesses and individuals added to trustworthiness blacklist as use of the government system accelerates

    System aims to pressure citizens to avoid bad behaviour, although human rights advocates argue it does not take into account individual circumstances

According to the report, the authorities collected over 14.21 million pieces of information on the “untrustworthy conduct” of individuals and businesses, including charges of swindling customers, failing to repay loans, illegal fund collection, false and misleading advertising, as well as uncivilised behaviour such as taking reserved seats on trains or causing trouble in hospitals.

About 17.46 million “discredited” people were restricted from buying plane tickets and 5.47 million were restricted from purchasing high-speed train tickets, the report said.

Besides restrictions on buying tickets, local authorities also used novel methods to put pressure on untrustworthy subjects, including preventing people from buying premium insurance, wealth management products or real estate, as well as shaming them by exposing their information in public.

A total of 3.51 million untrustworthy individuals and entities repaid their debts or paid off taxes and fines last year due to pressure from the social credit system, the report said.According to the report, the authorities collected over 14.21 million pieces of information on the “untrustworthy conduct” of individuals and businesses, including charges of swindling customers, failing to repay loans, illegal fund collection, false and misleading advertising, as well as uncivilised behaviour such as taking reserved seats on trains or causing trouble in hospitals.

Video games play a part in all this too...

 

5 Weird Ways Germany Has Censored Video Games

As you can imagine, Germany does not take its history lightly. That isn't to say they want to forget it ever happened -- quite the opposite. But Nazis, and everything that comes with them, are something of a sensitive subject. Though movies like Iron Sky made it to theaters relatively unscathed (despite featuring swastikas worn by Nazis living on the moon), games don't have the same protections in the country. Meaning that any use of the swastika in a video game is strictly verboten. So if you're the developers of something like 10 Second Ninja (seen above) and your main character is fighting Nazi robots in levels full of swastikas, you'll have to make some compromises.

Is it fair that video games have to censor themselves while Indiana Jones remains uncut? Well, not really. But as we'll see throughout the next few entries, the German government doesn't recognize games as art, and thus doesn't offer it the same protections as other mediums. But publishers still want to put their games out in Germany, especially since it's the largest market in Europe, ahead of even the UK.

Not publishing your game in Germany is leaving a lot of money on the table, so even games with Nazis baked into their DNA -- like 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order -- have been changed to accomodate the local censors.
