Date of 2020 for mandatory id "scores" of all chinese looms

CHINA'S 'social credit' system blacklists "lazy" citizens who get into debt or spend their time playing video games in a creepy initiative that could have come straight out of Black Mirror.
Analysing users' social media habits and online shopping purchases, the nightmarish system also grants real financial credit to citizens whose lifestyles are deemed to be more wholesome.

While the social credit scheme will become mandatory in China in 2020, it is currently being tested in pilot schemes which have been rolled out through private financial companies.

The Chinese have certainly had more than their share of insane ideas. There for a while it looked as if trade was teaching them a little about freedom, but I guess not.

Great!  Lazy people who don't contribute to society will soon go away!  What could possibly go wrong?   ;p

Looks like the 21st century is shaping up nicely for the tyrants.  Musn't allow themselves to have a lower kill count of their own citizens than the tyrants of the previous century!  Why that'd make them failed tyrants!  They won't settle I tells ya!  They're winners!  And winners don't fail...

Yeah, Same Shit, Different Day...er Century.  Going to have to get a new acronym.
