During this week's episode of "The Rubin Report," Dave Rubin, a BlazeTV host, played a video clip featuring psychologist and author Dr. Jordan Peterson speaking with Rita Panahi of Sky News Australia. In the clip, Peterson discussed why he believes that a totalitarian social credit system is a more probable scenario than we might imagine.
According to Peterson, the likelihood is high that automated social credit systems will be introduced in Western nations without attracting much attention. People will likely accept such a system, he argued, because they crave both security and convenience.
"Do you think what we did during COVID could usher in our version of a social credit system?" Panahi asked Peterson.
"Oh yes, definitely. That's highly probable," Peterson replied instantly.
After Peterson's statement, Panahi appeared extremely frightened and proceeded to inquire, "And that it will be accepted by many people because of that yearning for safety?"
"They won't even notice it. You can't believe how much people don't know," Peterson stated.
"People have no idea. It's like, 'Well, why not have a digital passport?' I mean, how convenient. And it's like, fair enough, you can understand that. Wouldn't it be nice if we could pay for everything with our phones? It's like, wouldn't it be nice if the central government — who is woke-oriented and makes carbon dioxide remediation the priority — knows exactly what you spend on everything so they can target you tax-wise with precision?" he continued.
"You just cannot imagine how screwed you are. It's way worse than anything Kafka ever imagined, because at least with Kafka there were bureaucrats, faceless though they may have been, they're human. Once the machines can lock you out, oh, you are in such trouble. And we're speeding towards that with an immense lack of care."
Dave Rubin added after the clip ended, "You see why it's important to be awake?"
