The Internet has become a tool for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to keep its citizens in place. Through the web, the government surveils their every move and puts them behind bars if their online behavior is not in line with Beijing’s sentiment.

Recently, Chinese officials began developing a social credit system in which the government keeps what amounts to an Internet credibility score on each citizen.
