?? Is China taking social monitoring too far? l Inside Story

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSb7uLB7foY
Whether we like it or not, we are constantly being watched. Security cameras and smartphones are making it easier to monitor our lives. China's government wants to take this further by eventually rating everyone on their conduct. So-called 'social credit' trials are underway, and people accused of bad behaviour are being penalised. Last year, more than 17 million people with low scores were barred from buying plane tickets, and another five million weren't allowed on high-speed trains. Four million companies have been blacklisted for what it called 'untrustworthy conduct', such as defrauding customers. Is this ethical, and could it be taking surveillance too far?
