China: Die AAA-Bürger – Golem.de

 

1984 lässt grüßen:

In China wird das Social Credit System getestet. Es überwacht, bewertet und erzieht die Bürger. Wie bei einer Rating-Agentur. Können die Bürger diesen Stand einige Zeit lang halten, sollen sie zur Belohnung vergünstigte Kredite erhalten oder eine bessere Krankenversicherung. Auch bei der Vergabe von Studienplätzen an die eigenen Kinder könnte sich eine hohe Punktzahl positiv auswirken. Wer hingegen unter einen Wert von 600 fällt, landet in der schlechtesten Kategorie D. Betroffene müssen sogar befürchten, ihre Jobs zu verlieren.

Sorting Algorithms Visualized

Germany is successful and happy because its values are the opposite of Silicon Valley’s — Quartz

For progressive and even centrist Germans, the startup-style definition of Erfolg (or “success”) is utterly incompatible with their values—which do not center on individual wealth, recognition, or even careers.

To most of Germany, the hagiography of bootstrap capitalism is not just morally wrong; it’s incomprehensible.

Many Germans would rather go into public service than start a business themselves.
