Citizens Police 市民警察

My firsthand experience with the “Social Credit” system in the Peoples’s Republic of China.

It’s a quiet Saturday evening, I’m relaxing in my Shanghai flat with my roomate. The pollution is bad outside today, so neither of us is planning to leave the house for a while. We’ve made some stir fried veggies and are talking about real estate in the living room.

A knock on the door. My rooomate looks at me. I shrug, telling him implicitly I also am not expecting anyone.
