CLOUD act is certainly not the same, and it does mandate anything like "citizens and organizations are required to function as covert operatives of the state" as mentioned in the article.

In fact it does not concern individuals at all, it is only about mandating companies to provide requested data stored on servers if a warrant is served to them. It also provides mechanisms for the companies or the courts to reject or challenge these if they believe the request violates the privacy rights of the foreign country the data is stored in.

"Also you can't even say that they requested information from you, else you get canceled, banned and destroyed."

Ah, you're speaking again about the Chinese National Intelligence Law. They sure do have a habit of making people disappear for re-education.
