|Fernand Leger, The Card layer 1923|
Marxist Leninist Social Credit systems emerge from a centralized system that is evolved under the leadership of a vanguard party with a quite specific core legitimating objective: the establishment of a communist society in China. That, in turn, requires the shedding of the imperfections of Western and liberal democratic principles and morals for the principles that under the leadership of the Communist Party will advance the core goal. Such a system necessarily may have substantial functional resonance with Western algorithmic law, but it operates on the basis of substantially different normative baselines. They might “speak” to each other on a technical level, but are essentially irreconcilable at the level of norms and (political) values.
