Communism has never really been tried because making it work requires technology that is only now becoming available. One of the most important advances relies on using Social Credit systems to help the New Socialist Man become a trustworthy cadre.
A series of articles in MIT’s Technology Review debunks false rumors that the Communist Party of China, which is dedicated to building a better world, wants to use its developing Social Credit System to impose totalitarian controls on its happy subjects. There is nothing to worry about in the recently released draft law to implement the scientific viewpoint of developing and building a harmonious society. Is this goal not shared by most American universities?

Let Tech Review’s writers untangle the complex, messy world of technology to help you understand what’s coming next.
