(RightWing.org) – It’s one thing to have to worry about your credit score when you talk to the bank, but now you also have to consider your social credit score – and if you’re a conservative, that could cause you some difficulties.
Merrill Lynch, a branch of Bank of America, is now assigning an Environmental, Social and Governance – ESG – score to its investment customers. ESG scores started as a woke way to evaluate businesses, but now Merrill Lynch has taken it a step further. They’re scoring customers by the businesses they invest in and penalizing those that choose politically incorrect companies like gun manufacturers, oil companies and anything else corporate social justice warriors don’t like.
The ESG score system is a new and shocking development in the US, but it’s depressingly familiar to citizens of Communist China. Since 2016 the Beijing regime has been giving its citizens a social credit score. Those who talk to the wrong people, listen to the wrong media or voice the wrong opinions can find themselves barred from buying plane or even train tickets. How long before this practice is done openly here?
