    In Mao’s time, children were made to turn whistleblowers on their parents for having forbidden books, musical instruments, expressing foreign thoughts and even singing un-patriotic songs. I already saw this in Australia where if you walked on the nature strip instead of the footpath on the opposite side of the road, you got strange stares. To protect yourself, you will need to wear a “dashcam”. Will they arrest you for “phonewalking” and not keeping your eyes on the path? If you drive a baby-buggy erratically, can you be expected to take a breathalayser test? Is there an emergendy lane where you can stop for a breather or attend to that pebble in your shoe? Once you become indocrinated, it might cause that split-split-second hesitation in sports like table tennis and badminton. Good for us. I can’t wait to see the first Chinese Tour group being handcuffed. I hope the pedestrians don’t use Waze because …. you know …. it is going to confuse the computer and poison their database. Eventually you will find this implemented in supermarkets. Try an illegal u-turn and the guards and tasers come out. “Lie down on the ground and keep those hands behind you!”
