    I think most of us are familiar with the social credit system in China. You can see some this already in place in the west by “deplatforming” those with differing opinions from those prevalent in Silicon Valley and other forms of thought policing. I can easily see the left going down this path here. The article attached provides some context if you are not familiar with social credits. Scary stuff.

    First you remove cash and then you can control. The Nanny state wants all it's good little children to rely on their dear Nanny.

    The link did not work for me, but I am familiar with the Chinese system. We have friends whose son was living in China. He was very happy to get out.

    It is very distressing to think that people here would agree with it, and think it is acceptable. I can't think of anything more foreign to American values than the Mind Police.

    Good morning Morgan,

    It started here well prior to the McCarthy era and well prior to Attorney General Palmer and his deputy, J. Edgar Hoover.

    Recall why the Civil War "Copper Heads" wore a "secret" lapel pin because they'd be prosecuted and even attacked if identified.

    A contemporary version: "Hate Speech".
