Reuters is out with a detailed story about the socialist government of Venezuela. The Venezuelan government now requires its starving subjects to obtain ID cards manufactured in China.
The ID cards, known as “fatherland cards,” give Venezuelan subjects access to government payments, voting, pensions, fuel subsidies and even food lines.
The cards are also quickly being linked to a social credit system in which subjects are ranked according to their loyalty to the government.
Those who refuse to accept the cards are demeaned as “right wing.”
