Sorry, you’ve reached your social credit limit

China has blocked millions of “discredited” travellers from buying plane or train tickets as part of the country’s controversial “social credit” system aimed at improving the behaviour of citizens.

This is where ubiquitous surveillance by the state (directly or via contractors) eventually leads.  This is why you shouldn’t trust the folks who want to dispossess you of your car; their motives are not what they professs.

Tip from the Instapundit, who predicts some Chinese people will find their social credit card inoperable in the bread lines of the near future.
