Original Marx-style communism is incredibly prone to corruption. Also, I don't think any present day gov't is without adjustment.

Honestly, I don't think much would change, every time I think a little bit of visibility would change things a video pops up to prove me wrong. The latest is the one with a guy on a hoverboard stealing a case of beer under the watch of multiple cameras. He knew they were there and used the motion of the toy to mask what he was doing. Being watched doesn't keep people from doing dumb things.

@SethBreedlove Yes, capitalism is not equivalent to democracy. But if you look at Communism as Karl Marx envisioned it, there's no room for free trade. All goods are to be allocated by the government. What China has now is a largely modified version of Communism, and that's no surprise. Marxism is a philosophy that sounds great when preached but fails when implemented.

@ Magneticnorth.   China is a communist country.   The real first Connumist capitalist country in history and a very interesting experiment.  That is a common mistake though.  People often confuse capitalism with democracy and the two are not the same.

@SethBreedlove thank you for making us aware of this. Sesame Credit looks to me like a Klout that matters—and really, it shouldn't. Looks like socialism has taken itself too literally.

@SaneIT on that note, I wonder how people would behave if Google Glass or something similar went mainstream.

@ CandidoNick. in most nations, the governments have to at least pretend to care about human rights.  It's when they no longer have to pretend that all hell breaks loose.

@ Jamescon, that is a funny situation that sometimes does happen.  I used to work as a credit investirgator and the mistakes would indeed sometimes benefit the applicant.  We would advise the individual to dispute it later in case the person who did own the account defaulted.

I did a little Sesame Credit research and I can safely conclude that Sesame Credit is not OK.

Joe, I won't believe it until you have proof that that position was actually filled and that the person who filled that job actually did some work that led to something happening at Fidelity. That job posting stinks of either some sort of fishing gimmick or some political play at Fidelity ... somebody "innovative" who got enough power to post that job, and somebody more politically savvy giving them enough rope to hang themselves.
