#TransformationTuesday: Tadpole Edition

Ever wonder what made America great? I think it was the fact the country was founded by people who possessed the three defining characteristics of the Age of Enlightenment.

and Individualism:


Three characteristics anathema to oppressive authoritarian regimes.


Take China for example; disliking behavior outside the norm they are in the process of finalizing their new “social system” that will ultimately rate all of its citizens and assign points in order to promote appropriate behavior and discourage anti-social behavior:

Like private credit scores, a person's social score can move up and down depending on their behaviour. The exact methodology is a secret — but examples of infractions include bad driving, smoking in non-smoking zones, buying too many video games and posting fake news online.

1. Banning you from flying or getting the train

2. Throttling your internet speeds.

3. Banning you (or your kids!) from the best schools.

4. Stopping you getting the best jobs.

5. Keeping you out of the best hotels.

6. Being publicly named as a bad citizen.

Like Santa they also have a list of good little girls and boys who will receive nice presents:

There is also a list for good citizens — that will reportedly get you more matches on dating websites.

They can also get discounts on energy bills, rent things without deposits, and get better interest rates at banks.

And it really, really works!

"For example, when we drive, now we always stop in front of crosswalks. If you don't stop, you will lose your points.

"At first, we just worried about losing points, but now we got used to it."  (Business Insider)


Don’t anyone tell the Progressives! That is precisely the template they’ve been looking for in order to get the recalcitrants to behave properly.


A side note re. the FBI raid on the office and residence of President Trump’s personal attorney: Remember when Chuck Schumer said this?

"Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you."

Well you’re looking at one of the six. Do not fret. We just have to stay out of the pot, sit back…and wait.
