From an article claiming that China is piloting a Social Credit System that will work like a “credit score for citizenship” which will track your social media and rate how good a citizen you are:

Can you imagine a rating system being fully implemented into society that is not only meant to establish your “trustworthiness,” but is available for everyone to see? Well, China is seriously considering doing just that, as detailed in the State Council of China‘s document published in 2014 called “Planning Outline for the Construction of a Social Credit System.”

Is it true? Or is it a joke?
